There is No There There

There is No There There is a series of photographic ‘collisions’ that, together, explore the evolution and transfiguration of personal identity over time. The series is an ongoing attempt to deconstruct my own feelings of isolation—by drawing on work from across my portfolio, the compositions explore the ways in which identity adapts and stagnates, and how time feels at once fixed and elusive. Made over the course of several years, each composition becomes a highly personalized self-portrait, with people and places layering to form contrived moments and constructed environments. Inversions, overlapping imagery, and ambiguous edges collide to present self and place in a way that can neither be fully disentangled, nor fully defined.
