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.
