"My Transience series examines the boundary between vision and perception, seeing and imagining, the real and the remembered. These images are both an inward journey and an outward expression, as I look for my place in society, society's role within my life, and the significance of my presence along the timeline of history.
To live in a world of perception is to live in isolation; no two people experience the world in the same way. The more society comes up with ways to over-stimulate our thoughts and our senses, the more our perception separates from reality - we isolate ourselves from that which surrounds us.
I see reflections of myself played out through the lives of others. As I observe, I begin to realize the discrepancy between my thoughts and reality. I do not see the world from the outside; I see it from the inside. These images I create through my camera are memories and dreams, both real and perceived."
