Artist Statement My projects consider a wide range of subjects within the context of their daily circumstances. While anchored in photographic practices, my work often engages other media, sometimes fostering spectator interaction. As an artist photographer, I move beyond the documentary record by addressing the fantastical within reality and by deploying satire in order to channel my critical posture in regards to a variety of social issues. Conjuring fictional narratives staged in urban spaces, I seek to highlight the often-overlooked complexity of some of these issues. My work resists and challenges the commonplaces dominating mainstream discourse at either end of our polarized political landscapes. I am committed to the power of image making to spark radical change from within.
