The photographic image is both a form of fiction and a reference to the real. For many years I have been photographing my surroundings. In this new body of work, I am inspired by photographing architecture in my everyday life. Rather than seeking a view in the landscape, I have been creating paper maquette sculptures and photographing them in the studio. In the studio, the I use artificial light to transform the paper subject and create an illusion of space and depth.These internal architectural spaces are made to provoke a thought about a memory, an idea or decision. A narrative emerges as light defines and distorts the physical characteristics of the paper model. The light and shadow reference the space between life and death. This work directly relates to this process of grief, the seemingly abstract concept of loss, the mysteries of the unknown, and juxtaposes light and dark, life and death.
