Self-portrait by the House Wall (aka Nowhere)

In my photographs, I explore the incongruity that I often experience between what I see and what I feel. I seek images that affect me emotionally, but elude any specific interpretation, like certain memories or fragments of dreams that fade the harder you think about them. I am interested in this ambiguity and in photography’s capacity to suggest complex emotional states.
