There was Charlie who threw up in my lap at Space Camp and stopped speaking to me. The suitcase I packed full of Strawberry-Kiwi Snapples because they tasted like home. My father who couldn’t hide his disappointment that his queer kid struggled with the correct direction to face on the football field in gym class.
At least, I think these are true.
My work is focused on introspection and how photography can be used to investigate fragments of memory to engage with self-identity. I create images referenced on memories and fabricate memories through the process of image making. That conversation between fact and fiction is an effort to expose layers of identity rooted in the past and build others based on the present.
I received my BFA in Visual Communications from Washington University in St. Louis and recently graduated from the Advanced Track program in Contemporary Photography at the International Center for Photography.
