Light illuminates personal scenes and conveys emotions of memory, grief, and loss.

In this recent series, I've been exploring light in response to the loss of five dear friends, photographing light as it came through the windows of my home and touched everyday objects.

Light became as much about memory and grief as what it illuminated. The project struggles with the commonalities of life that grief both highlights and subsumes.

As both grief and its salve, light is the emotional and compositional conduit of these works. Dark Light is an evocation of the healing power of light; it documents the healing process by tracing its evolution written across the face of the everyday.
