I started my project by exploring the indoor and outdoor spaces of my home. I find working with a place that I know well to be challenging and fun. My work weaves between traditional documentary photography and the semi-abstraction of domestic space to give it more emotio and feeling. I work with color and form, but light is the most important element. I want to use light to create a new space. I often start by looking for tranquil and simple light. While the light is soft, it doesn’t always obey the lines of the space; it does what it wants. It has an odd power to shape the space in each photograph. This creates a defamiliarization that can sometimes fee uncanny or strange.
