I am interested in the duality of things and in the tension that results from the juxtaposition of beauty and repulsion. For this work, I focused on documenting moments in time that seem utterly ordinary upon first glance, however upon closer inspection they include disturbing, even disgusting, elements as well. Through a combination of photography and design, I experimented with lighting in order to lend an atmosphere of beauty and drama. I want to create images that tell stories but ultimately generate more questions than provide answers.
