My current practice stems from an abiding interest in psychological and philosophical disciplines. Committed to the exposure and release of interior emotion, I aim to deploy the camera much like a contemporary confessional box. Within the confines of the studio, photographic apparatus acts as a protective shield behind with previously concealed truths may be told. Attempting to confront particular perplexities and contradictory stances held within firm ideological belief systems, I seek to challenge subtle practices of control and manipulation. The Catchers becomes both an exercise in mourning and the re-negotiation of a rite of passage.
