I see small details and the isolation of body parts as a reflection of vanishing moments. The way that a joint or a hip socket might never form this particular angle again. I like to explore this with aspects of the natural world. Flora and fauna, teeth and tongues, hair and bones. The expansion and contraction of a ribcage, or a wing. I’m interested in how these singular elements of living beings can so easily complement and contrast with each other.
Moments of touch, movement, and sensation elevate what it means to inhabit a body, and the emotional and physical complexities of that experience. When photographing subjects, I gravitate toward what comes to light in moments of tension, when the human form becomes an aggressive instrument, whether as performance or in an act of self possession.
Equally exceptional are the moments where bodies become soft versions of themselves, perhaps returning to nature or seeking pleasure in solitude, lacking inhibition.
