I am a self-taught, Brooklyn based fine art/street photographer who uses her photography to explore the urban environment’s ambiguities, questions, and imperfections. I use abstraction to blur boundaries, express emotion, and interrogate complexities.
For me, much of the joy of photography is in uncovering these abstractions and meeting the challenge of portraying them through the camera. I achieve the abstractions in my work through the use of reflections, silhouettes, shadows and “shooting through” — no digital manipulation is used.
My major influences are Ernst Haas, Saul Leiter, and Gueorgui Pinkhassov.
