Urban space is striking. Its tall and mysterious buildings, crowds of anonymous people and an endless sea of concrete constantly intrigue
me. “City Space” is an ongoing photographic exploration of the urban environment and my perception of it, created in part while enrolled
in the Masters of Fine Art program at Columbia College Chicago. I am interested in the physical space of the city and its emotional and
psychological impact on the body. These photographs reconstruct mundane events in the city that I have personally experienced or
witnessed in public. Stark light, deep shadow and muted color are visual strategies I explore to describe the city. I use the city as a stage
and transform the physical space into a psychological one. The images I create do not represent a commonality of experience but instead
provide a personal interpretation of the urban landscape.
