 SEVEN YEARS AGO I BEGAN TO USE THE COMPUTER TO CREATE IMAGES THAT DOCUMENTED MY OWN FAMILY HISTORY.

I then started to incorporate family images from beyond my personal album as a way to create a collective history, one that would allow people to bring their own memories to my work.

Within these fabricated landscapes, the horizon suggests endless time, the trees demarcate space, and the fragments of snapshots verify an actual lived experience. The reassembled figures, their gestures and expressions, help to create a story that often reflects my own personal dreams and contemplations.
