Untitled #46 from "Stories"
Select your print and framing options
My Stories project first began at Columbia, when I became interested in somehow merging my major in photography with my minor in fiction writing. I was looking to create a bizarre, fantastical narrative within every image. Each photograph contains an anonymous character, seemingly unaware of the lens, whose face is never shown. Although I am playing the dual role of photographer and subject, these self-portraits do not concern the notion of self but rather the construction of a separate fictional reality. Every image is carefully assembled by myself, aided by costumes, props, studio lighting and posing. All these elements, along with the manipulation of a view camera, help me to bring a surreal and often amusing quality to the images. For this work I find inspiration in various sources, including film, the books I read over and over as a child and the occasional random object I almost miss on the street.
