Distant Places

I photograph as if I am a filmmaker moving in incredibly slow motion. After shooting one image I look for another to complete the scene. This process merges distinct views that combine external senses and the internal imagination. With the use of montage I extend both time and space making the whole different than the sum of its parts. These combinations are metaphors of how subjectively we remember yet how a memory can intensify meaning in every experience. Using nature as a backdrop I am recording its impact on our thoughts and senses. The double images look at the edges between chaos and order; loss and holding on.
