"Picnic Spot" 2007
Even the most average of places has a strange and unique quality. My photographs are about the
peculiarities in environments that are familiar to most people; I photograph things that people see every day, but do not pay attention to. Although my work is about people and culture, the spaces I photograph are always quiet and empty; there are no people around. I use large format color photography to show these places in an unaltered way. By photographing in that way I hope that my viewers will look at their world and start to see the details they have not noticed before, their beauty and their oddness.
