Hide and Seek is composed of “found” imagery captured photographically. As the title suggests, this work uses concealment and revelation to pique the curiosity of the viewer. The work in Hide and Seek attempts to interrogate the relationship between daydreams and reality—a relationship that parallels the one between photography and the world that it mirrors. Some of the images are seen through a mediating material like sheer curtains or window screens, while others show unobstructed fragments of larger (unseen) scenes. In these images I am looking to provide just enough information to activate the imagination. Those small bits of information are familiar, yet somewhat mysterious in their incompleteness; they tap into latent memories or details from dreams that are barely recalled.
