My photographic work focuses on creating the small, square, slightly faded images that are similar to photographs found inside old photo albums. I seek out a subject matter considered a link to the past and compose the image by excluding anything that would destroy the illusion of a vintage photograph. The majority of the images are printed full frame, without cropping. I use a toy camera called “Diana” to create my black and white images. The Diana camera is made of plastic, including the lens. The plastic lens produces a slightly blurred focus that adds an aged quality to the photographs.
