As a photographer I find a home in paradox. Life never gives easy answers, and we must often find a way to rest in the tension of questions that don’t resolve. But this doesn’t mean that answers aren’t worth searching for, or that they aren’t to be found.
There is a line from a T.S. Eliot poem that reads, “We must be still and still moving”. “Still and still moving” speaks to the tension inherent in paradox, and influences the minimal aesthetic of my photographs, which I achieve through experimental techniques like long exposures, intentional camera movement, and multiple exposures. Introducing the element of passing time or multiple frames into a single image creates at once a sense of stillness and dynamic motion. Without the aid of a camera they are images that are invisible to our eyes, as we experience time as a succession of moments, one after another, through a singular perspective. In my images I offer a glimpse of a world outside the singularity of our everyday perspective, and an answer to the question of how the world might look if we could see all moments and all places at once.
