My work is a response to a moment when the world falls into place and reveals boundaries between public and private, the individual and society, and the system and the personal. In appearing accidental, this visionary reaction-- from a brief glance to a rigid glare-- exposes the American experience of alienation in culture. That captured second opens discussions about concepts that invoke our fears and anxieties: economic and political affairs, consumer culture, loneliness, and racism. The facets of these issues are exposed and can be recognized by the observer. My photos inspire a conversation: They observe and ask questions of society and ask viewers to do the same. No answers are expected; it is the question that drives the experience.
