Artist's Statement

 My current project examines the remains of world's fair sites, be that the empty site where the fair took place or the remaining architecture. I make the photographs using original maps and retracing physically where the buildings and attractions once stood. I am creating an archive both subjective and literal, cataloguing these places which are often only identifiable by their titles and geographic locations, and showing either a conceptual translation of what once existed there or the thing that still exists.
