The foundation of my studio practice is rooted in conceptualism and the documentary tradition. My intention is to create visual narratives that permeate the subconscious in ways that are both familiar and estranged.
As a child I spent countless hours exploring the outdoors of Western Canada. Those early experiences continue to inform my research and thematic interests. I am endlessly fascinated by the liminality found at the convergence of humanity, the environment, genetic memory, and ethics.
Last Days of the Anthropocene, my current project, examines our shared complacency as we approach the point of no return in the era of catastrophic climate change. The photographs depict mundane human activities alongside pictures of land, which has been scarred by fire, mudslides, and severe weather.
My photographs are a collection of contemporary landscapes and portraits. The pictures reference both “New Topographics” and The Dusseldorf School of photographers, and are created using traditional film photography techniques.
