"library" is an ongoing series of images started in 2013.
Each images is a composite of many photographs, combined and manipulated to create a color field of books.
Conceptually this series recalls the distinct memory of libraries that many of us have, with an added element of a sense of fragmentation and modernity. It's my hope they can be read and enjoyed formally and viscerally, as well as intellectually.
The newer pieces in the series are made up of special collections, either a private collection like the books preserved at O'Keeffe's Ghost Ranch, or in academic libraries that specialize i.e, law, medicine etc.
My work draws from both the history of photography and modern painting, as well as the daily consumption of popular culture.
Images from various bodies of work. Please see my website for my full portfolio.
