Artist Statement:

Through photography I strive to understand and record a palpable mapping of both physical and emotional distance. I map my surroundings and balance what is both physically near and far. I employ two modalities - a geographic traversing of distance and a grasping at understanding that which feels distant. By pairing that which is intimate and close alongside nature and outer space I photograph the spectrum of distance.
