I prefer to record the spaces between the moments we recall later as memory.
Watermarks" is an ongoing series motivated by a desire to document the surface of water, what might be resting upon it and what may be obscured underneath as reflections and waves amalgamate to create constantly shifting intangible spaces.
These aquatic spaces are often photographed without shorelines and horizons to isolate them from familiar terrain. In doing so, these images -- while consciously made as documentation of vacations and daytrips -- evokes the psyches awareness of water as a life force and symbol of the soul.
