The late night evokes all sorts of interests in me; it opens doors to forgotten stories and tangible realities which cannot be seen in the light of day. With my medium and large format cameras, I wander in the streets of urban and rural areas alike throughout the world; Paris, New York, Kyoto, the Ardennes or the Northeastern countryside. I search for people, for moments, and at times it feels like they also search for me. I come across a glary street, a building, a stranger, a lone girl, a shady character in the distance. They stop. Perhaps they smile, pose or just pass by. I make the photograph. I am intrigued, excited, apprehensive at times, but attracted to whatever is hidden, secret or forgotten. Using long exposures at night, the image gains a luminescence greater than its actual radiance. I capture these atmospheric environments, and moments of tangible realities. Stopping for a moment, I look to reveal something almost nonexistent in scenes that will stimulate ones senses, emotions and past experiences. Through my artistic process, I aim to render the world’s enormous complexity into simple forms, to awaken the viewers’ imagination and have them build their story from the clues and elements captured in the image. In both my daytime and nighttime work, I look for unfolding events and transforming places with a strong narrative. I have a keen interest in making my photographic series in a limited timeframe, a few hours or a day, in a specific and delineated space. Relying on un-manipulated reality and candid situations, I communicate my own experience through this cinematic story-telling lens.
