I am a photographer whose work aims to pinpoint the fulcrum between opposites: present and past, reality and illusion. I want to create an alternate world that viewers can step into, like the experience of reading a captivating novel and feeling transported into another realm. There is a sense of longing in her photographs: between what is and what could be, or what has been but has slipped away. My work evokes a place where time seems to have suddenly stopped, a moment that will be gone forever once the movement starts again. This world doesn’t belong to anyone, yet everyone can see their own contrasting feelings--grief and joy, loss and hope--reflected in it. The theme of transitions occurs in much of my work: stairs can represent movement toward or away from something. Twilight is also a transition between day and night, light and dark. We often think of transitions as in between moments to endure while we look to the future or reminisce about the past. My photographs invite viewers to inhabit that state of flux and to accept it not as something fleeting, but as a constant.
