Using the camera as instigator, I work the edges of physical and psychological to mark city space and name urban place.
As cities in the South try to fill and reinvent themselves, there remain vacant lots and barren spaces throughout. These “cleared” spaces are charged with emotion and carry great history.
I utilize various methods and materials to map Southern cities and illuminate empty lots. Diverse iterations tap reflect the blight and optimism each neighborhood (and neighbor) is forced to navigate.
The South is redefining the urbanscape. By exploring the land that stands and bears witness, we bring new awareness to place.
