Encounter (2011-2015)

Through photographic composition, I address the tension between our internal and external lives, and between reality and fiction. Encounter (2011-ongoing) explores the desire for connection between individuals and observes the fragility, sometimes awkwardness and open-endedness of a personal encounter in public and institutional spaces. It is a direct outgrowth of the mediated terrain created by social networking that has changed the dynamic and meaning of personal encounters.
