In my work, I blend architecture, urban details, and fleeting moments to tell a richly layered story not possible individually. I have always been fascinated with buildings and city elements in my home city and other urban centers during my travels. Now, I capture these elements with my camera: a retro neon marquee, the facade of an iconic theatre, a beloved local eatery, grand bridge crossings, and even a odd pile of bicycles. I see this all as expressions of human creativity, the essence of what I am trying to capture in my work. With my etchings, I use a polymer photogravure technique to translate photographic elements into printed form and then combine several plates into a single scene. The composite scenes build a narrative that represents how I experience the world in an attempt to create a feeling of nostalgia, permanence and personality.
