HOME is an investigation of the trace evidence and imperfections of personal spaces. The locations I photograph include my home and other places I have spent time.  The preparations and adornments we go through to make our homes suitable for guests, ready for company, begin to wear down and the cracks begin to show as people spend more time in our homes.  It is the details of that prep work, the vacuum lines in the carpet, but also the failings to mask the imperfections that interest me – the traces we leave behind.  These domestic spaces are filled with cherished objects, collected ephemera that define a person or family, but just as often these spaces echo an emptiness that no objects can fill and evoke the tedium of domestic life. 

I am interested in telling stories, loose narratives that allow the viewer to bring their own histories and ideologies of home to the work. Home is about vignettes and narratives that speak to the monotony of daily life, private space, and the meaning we place on arbitrary things.
