“The compelling clarity with which
a photograph recorded the trivial
suggested that the subject had never
before been properly seen, that it
was in fact perhaps not trivial, but
filled with undiscovered meaning.”
(John Szarkowski, The Photographer’s Eye,
The Museum of Modern Art, 1964.)
I use photography to communicate what I see, not what I imagine.
I apply the early 20th century aesthetics of “straight photography”
and “modernist photography” to capture unmanipulated images of
the real world in the 21st century. Although my subject matter is ordinary,
I find monumentality where others seldom think to look.
