My photography reveals the effect of human occupation within the landscape of contemporary environments. My pictures are made to document a time and a place, static treatments of our everyday modern urban landscape. These anonymous, sometimes featureless structures and locations exclude people but at the same time show the effect of human occupation and interaction. I isolate my subjects, creating a head-on, cold and detached Kubrickian symmetry. My images allow viewers to see beauty in the everyday and show harmony in the ordinary and mundane that we take for granted.
