A Leap Of Faith
My work is directly informed by the problem of the real and the theatricality of belief. Photography has masked our understanding of reality with it's uncertain credibility - the line separating the real from the imagined has become increasingly indistinct. I am often deconstructing religious beliefs by using symbols to create my own theater of the absurd. Most recently, my series of cult suicides serve as a metaphor for the everlasting tragic romance that is religion - a dream of utopia followed by eerily repeated nightmares of self-destruction. These images act as a shadow of something existing entirely out of the frame. They reference what can not be seen, the beliefs that led up to the event and the outcome of postmodern spiritual craving.
