My inspirations come from the everyday comforts of familiar places and objects, meaningful moments of our everyday routine we oft misinterpret as mundane. Each medium I work in captures this comfort in subject and process. It’s about the comfort of light, seeing, and imperfection. Since my inception into the world of photography, I have enjoyed experimenting and exploring the myriad directions in which these processes can lead. This has lead me towards more gentle and simple approaches – almost as if digressing back to the purest simplicity of photography – the capturing of light. The methods I choose create unpredictable effects that yield results that are sometimes more than I imagine them to be. I like to take familiarity and stretch the basic capturing of light past conventional photography. Polaroid Transfer: This almost instantaneous process captures little jewels of light and vision. It takes conventional photography and incorporates the delicate hues of old fresco paintings, generating a feeling of calm with their timeworn, keepsake-like quality. The imperfections captured in the images through the transfer process – smeared, uneven edges, and missing pieces of the image – are as much my fingerprint on the work, as was my visual capture. These irregularities make each image unrepeatable. Pinhole: By use of the pinhole camera I’ve been allowed to strip my work back to the origins – capturing light with a simple box – the camera obscura. These cameras give me a closer sense of looking out from inside, thus making small comfortable things, larger and more meaningful.
