Drawing on the history of straight photography and pictorialism, I am interested in the material and formal components of an image, such as analogue film’s grain structure, the use of silver-based black and white, iron-based brown and color dye film emulsions, framing and composition, and how these elements influence the objects or events depicted. I view photography as an interventionist act, but also as a process of mechanical reproduction used to describe the natural and built environment.
