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.
