Places resemble who we are and what we have done. We mold spaces into our own. I photograph in environments most familiar to me in an effort to preserve the unfamiliar, unique peculiarities that happen everyday. I am drawn to capturing the temporary evidence that is left behind beyond the ever-fleeting present. These places have a collected history articulated through the dust, dirt, impressions and stains that linger. This quiet history will inevitably be erased. Impressions left in the carpet will eventually relax. Scratches on the wall will be painted over. Dust and stains will be wiped clean. The marks we leave behind will disappear. The places captured in these images are in periods of transition. I will remember them in fragments, in time, forgetting the smells, feelings, sights, tastes, and sounds. I record these moments in order to imprint the vanishing images on my memory. I am inspired by the faint remains in these places—the dust that collects around the pile of books on the shelf, the hint of a mark on the wall from contact with the edge of the table, or the blemish in the carpet next to the couch from the spilled wine. I take these quiet moments as an opportunity to reflect on what has transpired within these places and the ultimate vanishing of the marks left behind.
