A walk is not just mechanical motion but a space for critical thinking and creativity. Walking is empirical. It forces ideas beyond logic and theory. The camera always me to collect my walking thoughts. My practice values collected things as units to build communication and relationships. My photographs of everyday items, souvenirs, and interactions serve as frames to engage my life’s areas of interest or critical “open space“ including land use, domestic identity, and intentional living.
The Everyday weaves a tapistry of
repetition and chaos.
Family, marriage, parenting,
homeschooling, mothering, and housekeeping are my threads.
I think a lot about domestic space.
I aspire for simplify.
The domestic production of space offers opportunities to critique and intentional change the personal and the political.
The Everyday can be
intentional and strategic.
Portraits tell stories.
Relationships reveals not just the frame but
how connected we are.
Thank you for your interest.
Nature never disappoints- an open sky not polluted by civilization brings peace and reset. The North Maine Woods’ dark skies offer a visual opportunity available in few places. See as our ancestors saw and ponder - a step away from the human race and life’s complexity.
Choose simplicity. Be still and observe.
