Work in Progress

The images I’m making are about how the shape of a face shifts when a mouth tightens, eyes stare, and muscles tense then release. I examine the exertion I see in faces.

I am fascinated watching facial expressions grimacing and sweating and showing a gamut of emotions. Most of them pass so quickly they escape notice. I capture them.

These are facial landscapes, wet with sweat, wrinkled crevices, and mountain ranges of muscles. These images provide equivocal rather than definitive statements about the human condition. I focus on the transitional or metaphoric states that lie between life and death, integration and disintegration, matter and spirit.
