Here | Me

My BFA Thesis project consisted of a series of 10 hand-made photo books. All of the imagery was taken with a Large Format camera on 4x5 film. The making of photographs beacame a process of finding a sense of place and creating intimacy within it. Feelings of rootlessness lead me to wander the city grid with my camera. I observe paint fields that cover graffiti. The palimpsest qualities of these urban surfaces echo my disjointed past. In quiet contemplation of the enigmatic forms that efface the surface of everyday scenes, I create a new, more personal space."
