(Note: This is my newest collection, as of late 2010)

I am currently working on a series of contemporary photographic landscapes
I call “area photography”.

The subject matter I gravitate toward is unspectacular, and the images are a mischievous reaction to “epic” photography. There is a tension between meaning and meaninglessness that is expressed in this work.

This series is an exploration of the ephemeral, the peripheral.

I am looking for the monumental in the yard: neglect's found aesthetic.

Through the juxtaposition of spatial elements, use of color and light, and choice of subject, a sort of "discovered" narrative emerges, highlighting incompleteness as a condition of everyday life.

In area photography there is no “decisive moment”: what is captured is a comma rather than an exclamation point.
