My practice uses the lyricism of the black and white photographic image to create fictional narratives that navigate between the staged and the encountered. The images often involve the abstraction of the natural landscape and makeshift objects still life. Taking writer Anne Carson's interpretation of mythology and Mallarme's understanding of the symbol as a reference, my images are often presented or inspired by poetic text.
