Through the aesthetics and objective qualities of photography, I am beginning to explore my autobiographical past, experimenting with the camera as both a barrier and an insightful device. Whether through text, object or the immediacy of the image, I am creating pieces in which I am attempting to involve memory, artist and viewer within the same instance. By portraying these emotionally intimate memories and moments using the tangible and conceptual elements of art, I am cathartically reconnecting with my psychological past, in ways that I would perhaps not have the courage to otherwise. Continuing this cathartic work, my current project Sixteen houses is a personal process of revisiting the places I have lived in, and confronting the emotions they evoke.
