Statement:

These pictures were shot in a rusting tin dollhouse. The setting is a laboratory for the study of the three primary concerns of the Western philosophical tradition: Knowledge, Conduct, and Governance.

How do we know what we know?
How might one live a virtuous life?
What is the relationship between the individual and
society?

Through the use of a limited set of props, I’ve focused on the fragile nature of accumulated wisdom, the formation of an ethical code, and the difficulty of negotiating the threshold between public and private
