My work investigates the atmosphere of place in both the natural and constructed landscape through intuitive and chance-based approaches to photography.  Using In camera experimentations such as multiple exposures and pre exposure surface manipulations on sheet film, I am interested in disrupting the cameras role as a tool to depict reality and acting in the gap between the real and the constructed image.  Abstract actions within the frame further disrupt an understanding of what is recorded as real, and provide a distance from more straightforward modes of observation.  By combining the presence of my hand within the frame and images of the built environment, I look to integrate systems of chance and control into a single image.  Using these blind and uncontrolled drawings grounded in representational photographs, I try to explore both the constructed landscape and the materiality of photography itself.
