“As a photographer, I am mired down by the inherent issues of representation within my medium.  Once reality is photographed and re-created in the form of a physical image – what truth is maintained, and what fiction is formed? My practice examines this question and challenges photographic representation through the use of satire within staged imagery, and the redirecting of the “real” into the realm of visual fantasy.”
