My work takes many forms including photography, video and object-making, which often come together to create installations.  Depending on the concept being explored, the materials I use may vary.  However my most important material is time. 

 

My work is made possible by spending intensive periods of time with people in their own environment.  This involves a period of research and gathering source material in the environment in question. 

 

The subjects of this work often emerge through the act of storytelling, a process of uncovering the unseen.  My role is to act as a witness, documenting the experience of these encounters.  To relay stories that would perhaps otherwise not be heard.
