adding Time based

I've been working on some short pieces that will be shown in my space in June. This is just my beginning efforts at stop action. We'll see how it will progress. This is called "Foul Shots"

how to present...

I have been looking at these images and have decided that they need to be seen at a larger size. I'm thinking that they should be printed closer to life size and will be printed on a canvas.

more women's basketball

As I progress in my investigation of women's basketball, I am drawn to the strength and gracefulness of the players and the game. I feel that each movement needs to be isolated in order to be fully appreciated.

New Project


My new project deals with women basketball players and the image they project. My intent is to show a non-stereotypical image of femininity that is not often examined. In our society, women are still portrayed as being the weaker, less talented and less intelligent gender, while being objectified by the male gaze. Although this is just a beginning to a long process, I hope to show an alternative image of  femininity in today world.

Our Objects

I have been shooting the objects of our lives in order to give more of a contexts to our story. I will be incorporating these into a slide show/book of 100 images that will tell our story. I should have it finished in time for the January residency.

10 narratives, 10 images each

My mentor and I have been spending a lot of time focusing on my motives for taking pictures. My first written assignment was to list 50 reasons for why I do it. They ranged from simply enjoying the feel of the camera in my hands to issues of self worth. With this list as my starting point, he asked me to write 10 narratives or concepts and illustrate them with 10 images each. This has forced me to orally articulate my narrative in order to be clearer in my visual representation. This has also helped me focus on the importance of sequence. Here is one of my stories.

Now that I am not working, my routines revolve around Annie’s. I tend to get lost in my own thoughts and lose track of time. If it weren’t for her schedule, I wouldn’t know what day it was.
