In the series offSET, I use my experience as a still photographer on motion pictures as a starting point, but turn my camera away from the action_ off set. I am intrigued by where the artifice and illusion of movie making intermingle with the "real." Hunting for images that occupy this space, I slip behind the metaphoric curtain of center stage. I wander along the fringe of the location, studying the spectacle before me, yet looking for things unnoticed by others. In this realm, I have the freedom to capture the unscripted: authentic moments found within the contrived environment of a stage set, images that feature traces of the artifice being created in real-world locations and quirky details normally hidden just out of frame. Re-contexualizing these images, I create my own mysterious slivers of narrative that highlight the overlooked, the unexpected and the poetic. This image, offSET #29, New York, taken entirely out of its original context, implies its own cinematic moment. Yet the details are elusive, suspended between the artificial and the authentic.
