"Receded Water considers the interplay between bodies of water and the landscape that holds them. made in response to the low water levels of local reservoirs over the past three years, this family of photographs searches for a dialogue between personal and collective memory, land use, and a feeling of curiosity. rooted in the history of dialogue between photography and the landscape, Receded Water is at once a reflection of the past, and an examination of the present—as told by the land."

America, The Brave
2012 - present
What is the state of the American Dream, as told by its edifices, landscapes, and objects. After recent recessions and the ever-polarization of our populace? This project takes a subjective look at the signifiers we have in contemporary society through which we construct the narratives about U.S. culture: our buildings, our roadways, our signs, our flag(s), our fences, our intersections with the natural environment.
(2012-2017) A longterm nocturnal study of the deer populations that inhabit my hometown of Ashland, OR. The deer are an exoticized yet unwanted population situated within a the context of an encroaching settlement of alien species (humans). Tourists take photos of the deer crossing Main Street while ‘locals’ worry about the deer’s impact on their gardens and the safety of their pets. I’m interested in how the deer interact with and navigate the space at night when the alien population is safe in their homes.
