To wander is not to be lost, and, to wonder is not to be ignorant, but both lead to imagination and hope. All of these works are photo-based, but use a wide range of photographic processes, from historical process like palladium prints to contemporary inkjet prints. I also explore a wide range of photographic theories here: The images are also fragmented in some way: using multiple frames to create a single image, or multiple processes combining multiple images into a singular, or something where the viewer has to work for a sense completion. Images can also be included that break into the third dimension, requiring pedestals. The work is framed eclectically as well, ranging from finely crafted hand-made frames from pallet wood, to contemporary metal frames, to found frames from thrift stores. The frames might be from many sources, but I always keep a high priority on appropriateness of the frame to connect to the piece and to communicate ideas about photography and it's history. Ultimately, with this work I hope to find deeper connections to those fragments of understanding that fill our lives.
