Shadow Worker

Shadow Worker

In the series Shadow Workers, I use light and shadow to tell a story about the uncredited construction workers that surround me every day. Through the documentation of their daily actions, I have found that the medium allows for capturing moments that are more than initially meets the eye. When it comes to form, what you see is not always what is seems, and I want to allow for the audience to play and interact in viewing my work. I aim not to do this through invention, but rather insight. A universal memory of exploring a fleeting form is to create characters for clouds. When I look at these photographs, I often picture astronauts walking on the moon. I feel that this extensive observation of organic and structural shapes will open up viewers’ minds, and change the way they interact with and view other prevalent daily practices.
