My artwork explores the importance of perception when contemplating relationships to open a wealth of knowledge and empathy through understanding. By taking advantage of photography’s unique perception as a medium of evidence or truth-telling, viewers are more likely to be receptive to the message of my work within the context of the real world. To create or emphasize relationships between visual subjects, each work is arranged in the form of typology or data visualization to allude to visual, contextual, or procedural relationships. Visual relationships are more immediately recognizable and are useful for emphasizing relationships which are already known but usually only acknowledged at face value. Contextual and procedural relationships are more hidden than those which are visual and often require the viewer to take time to consider the relationships being presented. In summation, my work uses photography to encourage viewers to see connections where they may not have seen them before and to consider how these connections affect their lives and those of the people around them.
