I approach film as a field of potentiality, analogous to the blank canvas, wherein light, mediated by the camera, draws the image. These photographs specifically reference attributes of the camera, film and process such that meaning becomes as much a dialog internal to the image as one dependent on the symbolic significance of the objects in the photographs. 

Abstraction upsets our habits of casual association, calling upon us to re-establish meaning on new terms, enlivening our experience of perception.
