|Short Artist Statement
I photograph the familiar visual backdrop of life. I attempt to show this commonplace world anew, to bring to light the mystery and beauty that are in plain sight, but often hidden.
All of my still photographs superimpose exposures from multiple moments on a single “instant” Polaroid analog print. Multiple exposure is one of the techniques I use to leverage the interplay and tension between artist control and happenstance - in a very real sense, after multiple exposing, and then viewing the instant print 60 seconds later, I consider the photograph not only as as its maker, but I come upon it as the first member of the audience to arrive.
The resulting images transform the ordinary with unanticipated visual power to bring new meanings to what we see everyday.
