In order to touch upon the imageless substances that lie behind the boundaries of my vision, I attempt to transcend the surface of images. This exploration begins with the image of where my parents lie, as that spot is a definite threshold on the boundless map of life. Photography allows my parents to be reflected, repeated, dismembered and irresistibly contained within the square frame. This square frame also occludes my vision, leading to a sense of isolation. Indeed, this particular order of photography demonstrates how I am able to walk fearlessly on the surface of images.
