Light, in both a physical and metaphysical sense, is at the center of this body of work. Our expectations are questioned and confounded by optical inversions and visual illusions. These images lay bare the act of photography as they simultaneously mask and unmask the conditions of their creation. There is no neutral or objective point of closure, only the shifting perspectives of the observer and the observed. The making and the taking of a photograph is indistinguishable as each work celebrates the act of seeing.
