Statement

My formal training in image-based computer science domains and work for institutions such as NASA and the National Science Foundation has informed my interest in the devices and modes of perception.  My work questions and traverses the boundaries between reality and fiction, encompassing photographic play with surrealist theatrical landscapes, contemporary still life photography presented within the framework of historical Vanitas painting, deadpan portraiture relying on and exposing commercial photographic practices, and the diorama as an overwhelming sensory and immersive experience. Manipulations such as artificial lighting, a heavy directorial hand, and post-production tools allow “the false” to subversively camouflage itself as “truth.”
