Grounded in documentary traditions, I explore domestic and urban spaces, how individuals shape their environments, and the converse. My work depicts the themes of relationships, individuality, meditations on light and interiors, and urban environments through an array of photographic narratives.
Influenced by artists such as, Mary Ellen Mark, Deana Lawson, and Vilhelm Hammershoi, my current work provides a contemporary look on how individuals live in the rapidly changing city of New York through thoughtful and intimate images of individuals and their homes. Additionally, I utilize ethnographic research methods to inform the social elements of my photographic practice.
