Growing up in the Midwest, my world stopped at the Indiana state line. Everyone and everything looked the same. After a while, you stop looking. I couldn’t have known how big—and unfathomably—beautiful I would find the world when looking through the camera’s lens.
I photograph primarily vacated spaces. People are almost never physically included in my images. But the evidence of lives lived are all around. Their presence is felt, even in their absence.
I received my Masters of Fine Arts from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York.
I began taking pictures to see what the world looks like through the camera. I continue taking pictures because I can’t imagine life any other way.
My work has been shown in New York, Havana and Florence and Seoul.
