“It’s so interesting for me to see these two groups of photographs shown together at the same time. Differences and similarities within each group seem almost the same, but what a difference the environment makes. 


The sepia-toned photographs, made primarily in 2003, are intimate and formal; objects are carefully arranged in a darkened space — appearing to tell a story.  Present are deep shadows and luminous highlights where objects emerge from the depths.  


The more recent color photographs, on the other hand, are both brighter visually and lighter in energy.  Being flooded with head-on light, shadows are diminished and the picture plane flattens; objects tend to float on a surreal plane and the play of color fields can be as important, or more important than any of the individual objects.  The compositions let loose, the objects begin to breathe and become more animated — coming together in a way that can be either natural or improbable. This animation — the play of objects against and with each other — is the story in full.


Some of the more “surreal” elements in the photographs appear to be the work of photo trickery but are, in fact, straight photography. The placement of the objects appears to be impossible in the real world — that they are possible but read otherwise, amuses and entertains me, and keeps me in the art of making photographs.”
