Through my work, I seek to investigate photography’s connection to the concept of becoming - the becoming of the subject and subjectivity as well as the materiality of time. By using photography to locate and make palpable presence in the world, I affirm my own relational presence to everything I look at. Working concurrently on multiple bodies of work I explore a fundamental ontological question: In what ways is it possible to access the experience and emotions of other beings, if at all? How can I represent this possibility photographically?
