My photographs are concerned with the invisible ecologies, a natural history of intimate spaces. The materials I use in my work – salt, sugar, molasses, paper, and talcum powder are meant to be simultaneously evocative of raw, organic relationships and those that have their origin in a private or domestic sphere. I’m always looking for collusions of the interior and exterior worlds. Landscape is important in my work, as a kind of personal geography. The events that occur in these landscapes can be seen as phenomenological events of the everyday.
