My work explores complexities within the urban environment, shifting between straight photography and digital manipulation. I am fascinated by the way in which the place I live in functions, and the constantly changing appearance of my surroundings. The series “Boswijck” focuses on the unique cityscape of Bushwick neighborhood in Brooklyn NY.
I am intrigued by the cultural confetti reflected in its diverse and colorful architecture. The work titled “Boswijck” – the neighborhood’s original name, meaning “little town in the woods” – highlights this diversity by visually isolating different architectural styles of this neighborhood and showing them as abstract two-dimensional relics.
