Fluent abstractions in the mundane attract my eye to the scenes I photograph. These images were seen through and recorded onto medium format film by the plastic eye of a Holga 120S, a low-fidelity camera that adds just as much to the photo as the artist. It’s optical impurities, light leaks and manual functions allow me to capture and create something very different from what is made with a high quality digital camera, that shows facts without offering an opinion. The distortion, soft focus, double exposures and vignette invent a disorienting, yet strangely recognizable space from the framed fragments of the world around us. While the visual subjects change, the emotional tone remains constant.
I hope to compose in a way that evokes associations and feelings for those things lost and remembered as well as create balance between physical, recognizable artifacts and abstraction. With no specific class or time references, the images are historically inexact and evocative in their obscurity.
