As an artist working in the genre of staged photography, I construct, light, and photograph miniature, staged vignettes in my studio. Despite the fact that I never depict actual people in my photographs, the human psyche and the contradictions of human existence are undeniably at the center of my work. Like other photographers who have staged their scenes, I am attracted to the open possibilities the “blank canvas” offers, using the camera to construct and express my narratives. The use of miniature characters, constructed sets and vivid colors allows me to play with weighty issues in a lighter way.
