While sailing through the sea of my memory, I find mistakes, holes, pieces missing and gone astray; these photographs are those absences and defects drifting in that realm of recollection. Through the use of expired 35mm film, perishing polaroids, and experimentation in the darkroom, the images offer a gaze into remnants of what once was, fragments of people and tangible materials, and leftovers of a life long past. The pictures are visual representations of the mind when voyaging along that sea composed of unending waves that mark time. I see false colors and edges of the recollections frayed and faded. I perceive faces that are no longer faces but only unfilled spaces, images overlaying onto of each other. Sometimes I can only make out the vestiges and traces of places, people, and things. The act of peering into memory can be illusive, distorted, melancholic, but also incredibly beautiful and rhapsodic.
