"I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn't photograph them."
                        – Diane Arbus

The dual role of documenting found environments while still leaving room for questions enchants me. It allows for the appreciation of common everyday surroundings, while romanticizing how certain scenes came to be.

The curious placement of objects and items lend evidence to the people that were once present. Time also contributes, revealing hints of decay, neglect, or Mother Nature beginning to reclaim what is hers. This quiet commentary on modern day artifacts in their resulting environments unveils a level of humanity. With what is left behind temporarily or permanently, a human imprint is made; and something, fictitious or not is said about us as the result.
