My research combines elements of perception, collection, folk culture, and place. My work examines discrete sites and acts of preservation, including observational structures and heritage museums that display objects curated by residents. The photographs I make are informed by mythological riffs generated on isolated topographies and the experiential practice of seeking and finding them. These projects have taken me to locations in the US and abroad. Each body is tailored to idiosyncrasies of locale while uniformly addressing landscape, mapping, cosmos, environment, and the slippages between memory and interpretation. In departing from straight documents, narrative symbols, or archival objects, my images explore all three – those moments where they come together, and fall apart again.
