Making art in a time of a pandemic forces a rethinking, a return to basics — light, shadow, time itself — and a resetting. Expectations, subject, technique, and even the lived experience of time itself shifts. Is it twelve o’clock at night or at midday, and does it matter when it can look the same under my lens? Am I an adult making the best of suddenly limited resources, or am I once again nine years old and sneaking off to the backyard with my cousin’s Polaroid camera? Is my deepening communion with the nearby puddles and petals evidence of a return to lost roots, or a harbinger of a newly unhinged way of living?

In my regular practice, I seek to explore the visual language of memory, recovery, place and placelessness. Through analog and digital photography, I trace African American cultural and vernacular landscapes, and outline the submerged histories of Southern geographies. Making the ephemeral and erased legible is my primary artistic concern.
