I am interested in states of limbo – buildings and houses, tracts of land, cars, objects, and even people that have been in stasis for years or decades but that may be on the verge of sudden and irreversible change. I feel my photographs are successful when subtle signs of impending change find their way into my work. I also try to capture the human desire for stasis, or more accurately the desire for stability, which is often at odds with the equally human desire for change.

I don’t necessarily have a preconceived notion of what I want to photograph. Instead, this work is a way of moving through the world and exploring these states of limbo. The photographs I make are evidence of that exploration.
