My work is often focused on our perception of space within and around the built environment, and notions of entropy. Although the imagery is largely devoid of a human presence, there are human traces and marks upon and within the structures and objects I photograph. These marks are witness to the lives that have come into contact with these physical forms and spaces. One result of the photographic process is the isolation of a fragment out of the stream of time, and a photograph inherently has a relationship to entropy. For this reason I consider photography to be the ideal medium for exploring the evolving material world.
