Introduction

 

Since the invention of photography, the image-making process has evolved from accurately rendering to subjectively depicting realities. I’m interested in photographic processes, and as I explore more photographic techniques, I realize that photography makes possible more than the representation of a single point of view, a single moment, or a recording of exactly what was in front of the camera’s lens at a given moment.

Beyond the subject matter of the photograph, there are the materials, the actions of and choices made by the photographer, and the time involved in the image making process. By using different materials, my works challenges the established photographic process. Instead of the control required to make a “perfect” photograph, I deliberately leave the results to chance.
