Stories About Snakes - Winter 2012 + Spring 2013 -

This project began as an ambitious independent study with illustrator/professor Melissa Ferreira ( http://www.melissaferreira.net/ ) and ended as a book.Each shadowbox is approximately 25”x 17”

These illustrations are meant to accompany a collection of three wonderfully short and parable-like fairy tales about little girls and snakes…

SPRING 2013 - Spirit Photography pt. 2-

Medium Helen Duncan in trance state during a seance, the puppet hovering above her is supposedly the ectoplasmic form of a spirit named "Peggy"

SPRING 2013 - Spirit Photography -

A photo series based on the bizarre and wonderful spirit photography of the Victorian Spiritualist movement. I was struck by the disarming sincerity and (now ridiculous) falseness of these photos. While inherently fraudulent, these are also images of comfort and hope: a final goodbye to the diseased.

I experimented with a few of the techniques used by “spirit photographers” to create their pre-photoshop illusions.

I plan to document the “ghost mask” in these photos more thoroughly.

Fall 2012 — a few images from MAY QUEEN —

This series became a book; each image seen alongside a verse of Tennyson’s poem “The May Queen”
