BIO

My work explores urbanism, development, and our surrounding built-environment. They invoke serenity and stillness in otherwise hectic environments; moments to reflect and recharge before continuing our busy lives.

Many of my pictures start with quiet Sunday walks, taking pictures around whichever city I happen to be in. I then edit out all the people, cars, garbage, and other signs of human life. My end goal when creating images is to make them as still and serene as possible, even a little surreal. Otherwise busy spots end up as silent and devoid of life; they feel much like a memory after waking up from a dream.

My PORTAL series stems from the geometry I often focus on while shooting. Some images never felt complete, so I began superimposing my own geometric overlays to balance or respond to natural and human made features. They also relate to the dreamlike qualities I invoke; they are in a way “portals” to other illusory states and speak to escapism, serenity and stillness.
