Artist Statement -

The past shapes my view of the present. I find my images in iconic things of yesterday and try to re-imagine them for a contemporary audience. As an artist that uses photography as a primary means of expression, I believe that the historical processes are even more significant to contemporary art than they were years ago. Today they are aesthetic choices, the means to an end. I use historic processes and combine them with modern techniques to create compelling images that make a statement about our culture. I want my current work to redefine what is considered a photographic image and how the viewer engages with a photograph.
