SELECTED PROJECTS:

 

 

Indefinite Free Time (2013 - present) addresses the humanity of Guantanamo Bay detainees by translating their paintings and drawings into a photographic form. Each photograph is intended to position a viewer to see what a detainee saw while they were creating their artwork. With these delicate arrangements of objects, these still lifes stem from the real or imagined and serve as an ambiguous glimpse into each of the detainee-artist's psyche.
