My work utilizes photography to explore the natural world, the everyday, and the temporal. These works are created through an instinctual and reactive process that occurs during my routine explorations of nature. I am drawn to the moments in spaces that are fleeting, or that signal a point of transition and motion. The moments captured are expressions of our shared existential temporality, and the impulse to artifact experience beyond the limitations of human memory.
This process is defined by an emotional duality. The moments I'm drawn to capture move me to awe, joy, wonder, and contemplation. There is a sense of pure revelation in the experience. But the same moment is haunted by an underlying anxiety. The moment needs to be captured and preserved before the memory begins to fade. And so the camera memorializes this dichotomy, both the fascination and the fear are fixed in the final image.
