I believe photography has the power to break the boundaries of emotional and psychological territory both collectively and on a personal basis. This body of work is an exploration of the boundaries between the real and imagined and a glimpse into my mind. The figure’s presence or implication of presence is a metaphor for what drifts between the imagined to the real and back to the imagined. These photographs allow me to grapple with collective and personal ideas of life and death, of the passing of time, and of what hides in the sub/unconscious. The journey of following this presence through domestic and “natural” spaces raises difficult questions, hopefully provoking the viewer to come to terms with boundaries of their own psychological territory and an appreciation of constant motion in a territory that provides few definitive answers.
