May - June
Zip Corning – Artist’s Statement
I enjoy the hunt for a new image, mostly because it means I am outside. My goal is usually to provide a sense of place for the viewer, but also a way to freeze time.
Photography has always been the tool I have used to try to document time. I am equally fascinated and terrified by the abstract nature of time, and the way we do everything in our power to control and label it. I prefer to revisit particular places and locations. In doing so, I am able to catalog numerous moments for that spot. There are a ridiculous amount of variables, like weather and season, and I strive to represent the familiar in a new light each time I capture it.
