Artist Statement

When I'm taking photographs, I am most interested in the ideas of nostalgia and grief, specifically the space in between those two ideas where things, people, or places are actively changing or disappearing. Places where it feels like someone has just been, but might've suddenly disappeared.

During the pandemic, I've been able to explore this idea more thoroughly. Places that were once bursting with life -- neighborhoods, bars, restaurants, and storefronts -- are now empty.

On the surface, there is something comforting about the emptiness knowing that so many are doing their part to keep each other safe during the pandemic. However, this feeling is accompanied by something more troubling: the feeling that things, people, and places are slipping away -- disappearing -- into an uncertain future.

My current work hopes to document the inherent anxiety of this time.
