I am a photographer and mixed media artist. Having a background in both science and art, I often see the world through a dual perspective. I am attracted to both the natural and industrial areas around me, and frequently explore the juxtaposition of city and nature through my work. Mostly I make photographs because I am curious. I ask a lot of questions when walking around – How would this look up close? How do these things go together? My camera serves as my collaborator, as we see the world through a variety of filters, both tangible and intangible. The translation my camera makes of the world helps me to better understand it.
