Soliloquies | 2013

Soliloquies is a collection of color photographs made between 2008-2013. They are drawn from an ongoing daily practice to discover emotional truths and fundamental qualities animating my work. I photograph the people, places and things that surround me. The photographic encounters are unplanned and impulsive. I sift and sequence my work intuitively based on compositional rhythms and imaginative narratives. As I review larger groupings of my photographs over time, they appear not only to be of the visual world but also aligned with qualities and experiences I have difficultly expressing in any other way. Recurring themes emerge - whimsy, anonymity, tenderness, solitude. The title of this body of work refers to a theatrical technique defined when a character speaks aloud to oneself allowing the audience to glimpse their inner thoughts and feelings. The photographs in this series are inner dialogues with the outer world.

Archival pigment prints are available in two sizes and editions. Larger sizes available upon request:
