STATEMENT

As a child, I focused for long periods of time on small spaces—repeating patterns, pieces of landscape, segments of large objects-- until the act became for me a form of comfort and hypnosis. These photographs are an outgrowth of this impulse.

They are taken in places and of surfaces that would normally be unused, or too used to matter, each a small part of the fabric of space.

The acts of seeing and isolating can be purposeful, powerful, and transformative. Focusing on unnoticed space grants it a new position pure and free from the distraction of association. This isolation is also a beautiful opportunity to reveal anew the light that, as Heraclitus suggested, “forms all things.”
