Shaking off the shackles of ambivalence, stumbling blindly forward: my photographs deconstruct a subversive approach to fragmentary composites reflecting autobiographically on the performance of the photographic medium itself a mediated edification of ruptured reified societal structures to which it adheres albeit unwillingly.

Long before I learned about cameras, my life with photography began as a cacophony of shadow and sound as I lay watching rays of light glide across the darkening gloom.

When I was eleven years old, legendary photojournalist Powell Krueger invited all the neighborhood kids into the darkroom to learn how to develop and print black and white negatives.  At fifteen I believed I was an artist and wanted to study photography, but it was a dream deferred.
