My large-scale photographic installations investigate, deconstruct and interpret “the city,” both as its physical self and as an idea. The work is dually site-responsive; the location of the exhibition space determines content while the size and shape of the exhibition space determines form. I “gather" architecture by shooting scores of images during repeated neighborhood walks, capturing flux from a pedestrian point of view. Research into past and present zoning, landmarking, and development help guide my eye and provide a conceptual base for the work, while my real time, feet on the pavement, gut reaction to the physical make-up of space influences composition. Impossible to take in with a passing glance, the grand scale of the work halts the viewer in their tracks, forcing them out of their complacent gaze, demanding they reconsider their relationship the city.
