    Archival ink jet print, Bond paper

    My practice consists of making images taken on the street, collecting and compiling them, and then re-contextualizing them through diptychs and large-scale analog collages. After dividing my archive into categories, I found themes in the objects and beings I have made photographs of. Though it pains me to remove them from my compositions, I felt it necessary to college them into piles of themselves. I am primarily drawn to topiary, fake nature, fake animals, flowers, people, and religious icons. I still seek to comment on US culture and humanity with these collages, but in a different way. My current street photography and collection practice is an accumulation of years of continuous shooting and life experience.
