Photography and Visual Practice

My visual work examines the urban condition through a range of scales, registers, and media. The primary focus is the everyday life of cities and the ways in which human creativity shapes urban form and meaning over time.  Most of my photography, drawing, and mapping projects occupy the intersection between documentary and aesthetic impulses, and in doing so are neither real nor beautiful, but something else.  That "something else" changes from time to time, but might best be described as the trace of a world, a sense of a place, a condition of living.
