Mere Exposure

Throughout my work, I focus on how memories become abstracted and distorted over time. When one considers the past, our memories of a certain person or place are often fragmented. Photographs provide us with the ability to capture a particular moment in time. Time passes, recollections fade and are broken down into simple forms, shapes, and patterns. These forms are what hold memories together. Through this continual process, I first construct and then deconstruct personal memories. Each image is fragmented, similar to the nature of an old memory.
