Of this work, ‘All-Time Lotion’ he writes, ‘My photographs are the product of image-making that is both intuitive (responding quickly to visual phenomena) and ambiguously choreographed. I am interested in reinterpreting and altering the intentionality of spaces and found items. Somewhere between instinct and cognition lies the overlooked residue of experience. This series maintains the semblance of ordinary, everyday things while investigating their latent conceptual meanings’.
