Artist Statement

A room is meant for a person. A room is meant to be stood in, walked in, lived in. The rooms you see are empty, only hinting at whom they belonged to. Architectural photography often

captures buildings and spaces the way the creator intended--showing beauty and function.

Examining these generic, even banal rooms without occupants shows what is left when we leave such spaces behind us.

Removing any indication of those who used these spaces leaves us searching for signs of human activity, for signs the former inhabitants. Each photograph shows a space that has been discarded thus creating a mental space.

These photographs depict the relationship between architectural space and the person intended to occupy it.
