As a photographer I focus on issues of cultural identity and memory, and construct

contemporary narratives which create an opportunity for discourse in which individual and

collective memory can cultivate new explorations of identity and place. A seminal aspect of

my work lies in the territory of family. Home and family have functioned as subject, provided

a physical source archive, and served as a catalyst or touchstone for all of my work. Through

the lens of family, I have explored portraiture, environmental conservation, war and its

ramifications, and numerous forgotten and soon-to-be-forgotten histories and cultures of the south.
