Personal Statement

My photographs are a response to the immediate world around me. I think of my work as autobiographical because of the way it resonates with my life. Through my photographic explorations, I find myself returning to my original passion, which is documentary. I realized how important it was for me to hear my subjects speak and watch them move. This convergence of both still and motion image has been a logical progression in my photography and has expanded my audience. In my heart I am a true hybrid, who has been trained in the modernist tradition. By blending images into moving sequences, I am able to tell stories about the issues that deeply touch me.
