Wonderland of Decay:

Mingling of Decay and Growth
Fantastical Entry Points
Metaphorical Rambling
Falling, an Innate Design
Material, Particles, Regeneration
Beneath Corners there is an Activating Light
Resonance, Resistance, Cycles
Psychology through Texture
Residual Matter meets Objects
Balance Between Remaining and Escaping

Living in the age of the Industrial decline, I photograph defunct amusement parks and mental hospitals seen through a fantastical lens. My work talks about the everlasting disenchantment of escapism and how cyclical forces of nature can triumph.

I think there is a subtle space between time and memory, where materials continuously exist in unusual ways.  I am navigating through landscapes and rooms that capsulate objects of identity, hope, trauma, entertainment and comfort. I visit these places to experience how light moves through the spaces and how unspoken energy remains.
