Artist Statement

I used to be afraid of thedark. Chicago, where I was born and raised, is always lit. I feel at easesurrounded by pedestrians, cars, and the glare of commerce.

Now I explore dark countryroads looking for the moment when electric light conspires with the fading sunand the rising moon and stars to cast a rich glow over the landscape. I takeslow photographs that reward the patient viewer with the tranquility of subtlepatterns and unexpected colors.

In Mighty Ambiguity, I use photography to investigate the space inbetween now and what comes next. I am interested in the transition period thatis bookended by what was and what will be. The change from the old to the newdoesn’t happen at once. It is a metamorphosis where the old fades away and isgradually replaced with the new.
