My work focuses on the hidden, imaginary and delirious aspects of photography, taking a starting point from moments where representational logic fails and attempting to give these moments of illogic a representational form of their own. Each of my projects addresses this paradox in some way, attempting to re-tell the story of representation along somewhat different lines of thought -- attempting to "imagine the world otherwise" as the philosopher Richard Kearney once prescribed for a world grown overly attached to the literalness of instrumentalized living. In this way I see my work as a critical exploration of representation in the service of imaginary possibilities.
