PROJECT STATEMENT
"The series Hilton & Saratoga focuses on powerful memories: selfless self-portraits of myself existing in a landscape unseen and photographic depictions of happiness, loss, and despair that I have experienced as a deeply sentimental and empathetic person throughout my life. Objects and places have always held extremely intense memories for me, and I often carry them around as baggage. I obsessively document and hoard mementos of past lives, happy memories, sad memories and turning points. Constantly associating people with places and possessions causes them to ascend into memento mori iconography.
Those dreams where I can feel myself running after something, it is so close I can almost grasp it but in the last minute it is too far away. A great friends beautiful wedding, the loss of the local ice cream store in the winter months, my godmothers heroin addiction, my fathers battles with cancer, the death of my grandfather, as well as other members of my family all hold life changing trajectory significance in my brain. I often need a good deal of time to cope and fully comprehend a life changing event, and when they are forced upon me I rebel in terrible ways."
