1971 – age 10 (House)

Photography; Inkjet Print, 2004

Drawing upon my past career experiences spent on film sets, my work emulates the filmic process of creation and destruction. By creating a diorama or set in miniature, I can make new photographs that serve to stand in for memories of past events. Once photographed, the set is then discarded and only the image remains.
