I make work that tries to reflect the complex relationship that humans have to nature, both
perilous and beautiful, and contradictory as we struggle to see ourselves as animals who have a
tenuous relationship to life as do all animals.
My work is poetically and intricately crafted to encourage the viewer to reconsider social and
historical narratives especially when dealing with Colonialism and raises critical questions about
the politics of erasure and exclusion.
My work flows with the primary elements which are coming as conscious creation from mind
and appearing in the minimal forms. This brain -so called mystic and â€“ involves matter,
condition, time and space as per the creation carries on
I explore different practices of archiving and photographic processes. I draw from archives and
produce them at the same time: acts of recording, storing, indexing, and redistributing are built
into my work.
I photograph (in both traditional black-and-white and digital color) domestic vernacular architecture in outer-borough New York City. I teach photography at Brooklyn College, and lived in Marine Park, Brooklyn for many years.
