Surfaces notes
2014-2015

 

The photographic image is not only a window through which to see the visible world but also as a maker of flat surfaces that interrupt or stunt logical perspectival space. “Stunted seeing”, as author James Elkins puts it, allowing things get in the way of the invisibility of the camera lens, to stunt or impede the clear matter-of-fact photographic world, as we assume it, with visual ambiguity. The mixture of these two effects are at play in my pictures. I'm see photography as a tool to explore ideas of perception, pictures commenting on or being a reenactment of perception itself, rather than serving mostly as documentation. Reflected subjects become as vital to pictures as the subjects themselves.
