My goal is to think more about what I have and what I can do with it, and do so through contemplation, engagement, and execution. To investigate the intersections of the photographic medium with that of other media as well as the materiality and conceptual underpinnings of photography. Purity of the photographic medium, or any other, does not interest me. I see the photograph and the photographic process as a way to engage in various methodologies regarding the act of art making through the more suggestive and poetic qualities of the process and resultant work. I make photographs from very basic things, common things, and do so in common places. I have always shied away from the exotic and prefer to rely on things close at hand. I rarely travel any great distance to photograph and I work economically with minimum fuss. I consider photography to be a pliable and malleable medium and do not hold any preconceived notions as to what a photograph should look like, nor how it should be made.
