This body of work investigates the moments and places that one takes for granted, assumes will always be around... and then, in the blink of an eye, can disappear. The events surrounding both 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina brought this project into a deeper personal focus for me due to my long-standing connection with both of these unique cities. This sense of apparent sudden loss can be applied to physical objects, such as buildings or cities, and even to concepts like summertime, mortality and youth.  I am attracted to quiet moments, childhood icons, off-seasons and isolation, even in the midst of activity. By using the softer, gauzier perspective of cheap plastic cameras these images contain a bit of that sense of nostalgia and sentimentality. But by occasionally using double exposures and image sequences arranged out of order I also want to cause a sense of discomfort and disruption.
