My work explores how human narratives shape the visible world around us. Our narratives are meant to create a sense of cohesion and control, an understanding of the world. Yet, looking from any another perspective, there is none such inherent cohesion to be found. Taking up different perspectives reveals the inherent gaps and inconsistencies within any narrative.

By manipulating scale, perspective, and light within the photographic medium, I invite viewers to deconstruct the illusion of cohesion in our narratives, exposing the inherent unpredictability of human decision-making and its unintended consequences.
