Work from Landscapes for the People.
“My inspiration for creating photographs stems from finding and documenting peculiar juxtapositions in everyday places. This process often involves the act of rephotographing photographs.
My current series, Landscapes for the People, looks at the use of romanticized wallpaper landscape photographs found in everyday environments. These wall sized photographic murals
seem to serve a psychological function, given their potentially intimidating or banal locations, like dental rooms and laundromats. These landscape murals allow the viewer an alternate mindset to nerve racking procedures or the mundane activities of everyday life.
Photographs from Landscapes for the People use the peculiar relationship between found images and operative items. The resulting photographs of these locations document the strange play of the functional environment and the idealized psychological landscape.”
