Simulacra and Suburb , 2019-
These photographs are part of an ongoing series undertaken upon returning to Southern California after more than 10 years away. They are an attempt to recapture and reshape fragments of memory from the geography of my youth upon returning after years abroad. Each image is a shard of remembrance, vague yet recognizable. As I move through the urban landscapes of my childhood, I am constantly confronted with ephemeral signs, flashes of indefinite memory both nostalgic and melancholic. These photographic fragments, or flashes of memory, physically imagine the phantasmagoric dissonance of suburban California.
