illustration / photography / publications

I’m interested in the tension between mark making and photography. For me, photography is something gestural, like painting, a tool for drawing outlines for things that are invisible. Light is at the core of my image making: I create illustrations by painting with emulsions in a traditional black & white darkroom, build pinhole cameras, work with analogue photography, and make photograms.
