The Seer and the Scene.
It is through my involvement with photography as a participant, observer, and creator that I have come to make this body of work. Using the camera as an instrument of inquiry and reflection, the resulting photographs serve as a meditation on the act of looking and the art of the photographic process. Through observation and direct engagement, I access a knowledge of the self and the other intuitively. By isolating moments in the lives of others and weaving them together to compose a narrative of collectivity, the space between the self and the other is brought to the foreground. By way of participating and creating photographs, the photographer is revealed in their photographs; the observer therefore becomes the observed.
