Artist's Statement

Photography can make 1/250 of a second last forever, or distill an eternity down to a single moment.  This weekend I will present a small retrospective of work that explores the progression of time, juxtaposing moments separated by milliseconds or centuries and illuminating processes ranging from industrialization and gentrification to the speed of sound and human reaction time.
