Description

Floating/Shining is an exploration of emotional environments sprouting from the wooded areas I grew up in. Through the camera's unique relationship to often man-made material, I construct photographs that comment on ideas of the metaphysical and supernatural as they relate to the human condition. For this reason, I choose subject matter for the way it photographs, leaving behind any cultural significance. Inside the compositions, mirrors work to disrupt the process of viewing a photograph, so the audience no longer sees an event taking place, but is aware of the subject's physicality. Floating/Shining manifests into bright, analog silver prints that embrace materiality, and are printed in a way that prioritizes the subjects emotional charge. I oscillate between the built environment of my own apartment, and the natural landscapes of wildlife conservation areas to create a dialogue between material, the medium of photography, and the metaphysical.
