Umbra

I am interested in memory: memories controlled by imagination, reshaped by experience, and retold through photographs. In childhood, these memories are the most fantastic, frightening, dramatic, tense, formative...precisely because recollection is so unreliable. Using my own interpretations of everyday events, childhood games, the landscape of my home, and most importantly the photographs from my family archive I rewrite the perceived reality of my childhood into new truths.

In piecing together these memories from my own past I stumbled into a fictitious world where the darker undertones of American midwestern suburbia reside; where psychological experience meets a version of the past - one controlled by emotion and desire more than logic and truth. Using the visual vernacular of family picture-making with elements of extreme light, shadow, and color, I create new photographs that reference ritualized and archetypal family snapshots and my own family’s interpretation of it.
