Post-Modern Photography

This collection of photographs, taken between 2011 and 2014, serves as a cynical representation of urban life and it's tendencies to promote a culture of physical and emotional isolation.

Muted, morbid and darkly humorous, these images reflect the capacity of physical structures and spaces to contain and calm our natural impulses and anxieties.

The features of the cemetery (land ownership, grid-based layouts, clan affiliation) replicate the core features of our society, and so symbolically, help the dead maintain their on-going individual identities and affirm their continued social existence. In this sense, the symbols of death tell us what life is, just as symbols of life help us define what death must be.
