I discovered my love of writing at a very young age, while photography came slightly later as an eleven-year-old. In the fine art space, I found myself continually creating work that incorporated the act of writing with the images I made. I became interested in what meanings, stories, or imaginings other people might be finding in my images, and so I endeavored to find out as literally as I could.
Working with 13”x19” luster photo paper, I would show people (from family members to complete strangers) a photograph digitally and ask them to fill the paper with whatever came to mind. After they put down their pen, I would print the image over their work, working the settings to a point where their initial penmanship shone through. These are the resulting works.
