My obsession of documentation has became a major influence in my artistic practice. Each work represents a little piece of me that has been archived, otherwise may be forgotten through time. Works can contain fragments of memories, moments within time, or internal struggles that may still be on-going or have passed through life. In order to fully express the complexity of the subject matter, I juxtapose elements within reality in a surrealistic manner. In this way, I create a photographic image that captures the both visual and emotional factor of the subject matter. The works are presented to the viewers in hope of evoking their own life’s details and find beauty in the little details that make up who they are.
