A name… We give names to people, things, thoughts, and emotions to identify, categorize and differentiate. The photographic combinations presented here are metaphors about that process. These images ask the viewer to re-evaluate the meanings signified by the persons, places, plants and animals and consider the synapses that connect them. I invite the viewer to seek visual correlations that create new emotional and psychological associations.
My work is concerned with photography’s ability to describe specific details and to suggest open-ended stories. In this group of photographs, narrative is presented in each frame as well as between the various images. My goal with this body of work is to visually express the thoughts and emotions associated with struggle, loss, self-actualization, and liberation.
