My Palette

(This is the first series of limited edition prints that I am releasing for sale.)

No matter where I travel, when I photograph spaces without people, I’m attracted to a particular palette. It’s made up of subtly expressive colors, textures and shadows that convey the feelings, moods and perhaps the thoughts of the inhabitants. I use my palette to answer the question: When people aren’t in spaces they typically inhabit, how much of their personalities can still be captured?

I approach photographing peoples’ spaces the same way I approach portraiture—using the same care and respect as if I were in a person’s “actual” presence. I don’t touch or reposition anything. And I take all the time I need to make a “candid portrait” without any fear of losing the moment.

My palette and my approach to photographing feels just right for these uncertain times. Looking for the lingering personalities of loved ones in our spaces and objects passed on—we can feel more connected, more situated, more ourselves.
