"My artworks constitute a career-long investigation into the ontology of photography. Freely moving between photography, sculpture, and installation, my projects are based on narratives about current or past events, and often include familiar objects from my home or studio, such as chairs, tables, clothing, and snapshots. All of my projects, as well as this blog-style website, constitute an ongoing exploration of photographic indexicality, the archive, and the frame."
