Artist's Statement

I am obsessed with the history behind an image – that which is described by the photograph in front of me, but also the history that cannot be. No matter how much information is sharp and visible in an image, how detailed the title and how accurate the exposure, there is always a part of the image that was solely experienced by its creator. I love the idea that there is action in the images I make that can never be seen; the ghost of the picture that will always remain a mystery. There is a performative aspect inherent in photography - the ephemeral process of creating, the thing that is always lost.  To quote David Horvitz: "The action and these images are inseparable."
