UCLA MFA candidate working with the photographic.
As a mechanically produced record of a real light event, the photograph is tied to our notions of reality and truth in a way that painting, drawing, and other hand-made representations cannot access. And yet, photographic production as truthful, neutrally mechanized, and non-negotiated is completely up for contention. Therein lies a speci cally photographic capacity to hover between real and unreal experience, uniquely able to access and sustain belief in indeterminate moments both understood and unknowable. In my own practice I am interested in harvesting documents from this indeterminate realm.
