My photographs are about a way of looking at a place, but not a particular place. Framed with a common viewpoint, they are images of the urban environment discovered anywhere in the world I happen to be. I study intimate spaces the eye sweeps as one strolls along. This is a zone of the ordinary, and seldom does our gaze rest there for very long.
Here I find transitions; simple divisions in the urban fabric. Elements such as curbs, fences, thresholds, crosswalks, and building corners split the city into zones: automobile/pedestrian; interior/exterior; hard/soft; recreation/commerce; natural/manmade. This is the city carved up, divided, and fused together by commonplace activity.
I am drawn to their dual-point perspective, with the subject receding in two directions. Devoid of people, the photos nevertheless express humanity. The ordinary accrual of stuff, and the maintained or neglected built realm, reminds us of the people who created the photographic subject. In these places is a short story.
