This body of work looks at how memory recall produces imperfect representations. Over time, exact memories of the past fade, become distorted, reinterpreted and displaced. My photographs are intended to demonstrate transference of meaning and the amalgamation of several true or forgotten events which our minds both store and attempt to retrieve.

By establishing a contrast between the intended meaning of the image and the veiled implications, the boundaries between reality and fantasy merge. I create surreal, reconstructed images which are intended not only to recall moments of personal significance but to create a new condensed memory that has evolved from a past experience.
