“These images are a selection of work from 2009 – 2011. My photography and photomontage pieces come from personal exploration and childhood superstitions documented from behind closed doors. I shoot within the familiar walls of home and surroundings working often in the tightest corners or crouched low to the floorboards.
I want to communicate with my own ghosts, to produce and document a voice that others might recognize.
While I work predominantly within the digital medium, visually I am influenced heavily by the early Surrealist and Bauhaus movements of the 20th century and I try to infuse my work with the tactile and delicate tangibility of storybook pages.”
