My work addresses photography’s continuously expanding role as a tool to communicate ideas, feelings, and truths – and its tendency to shift shape in how it is defined and understood as a medium. Using collage, drawing, and sculpture, I manipulate, obscure, and otherwise distort found photographs, cutting and tearing them to reveal their limitations as representations of personal history. This disruption demystifies the illusion of the photograph, exposing its increasingly malleable interpretation and mortality as a physical object. My interventions give these anonymous, once-antiquated snapshots a new life and ability to live beyond their fading past.
