Hidden Images Videos Hidden Images Videos
My photographs and videos contain the composite qualities that emerge from window reflections. I’m drawn to creating these seemingly layered images to convey how multiple levels of reality -- surface, social, conscious and subconscious -- co-exist. What I capture has no devised narrative, yet in the viewing meanings emerge. My inspiration is the aesthetic nature of these multiple layers and how they hide and/or reveal things as commuters pass the scene. Through these hidden images, my aim is to allow my viewers to experience the full yet transient nature of our daily lives.
