In the series, Topographic Errors, I photograph cinematic moments where figure and ground interact. Each image functions as a film still, alluding to a larger narrative ultimately unresolved in the following frames. These unfinished stories question photography’s ability to document: are these real? are they staged? and what about the unfocused space that obscures our view? These places and these stories could be anywhere and with anyone.
