Analog photography

C-Print and gold leaf mounted on Dibond

This series speaks to the idea of 'presence' - specifically the religious concept that God is everywhere. It includes a mix of staged and street photographs which background is covered with gold leaf. That technique refers to Italian pre-Renaissance paintings: before mastering perspective, artists used gold leaf for the background to represent the space of God. Representing the world as divine and not human in this way eliminates references to time and place. In these photos, people seem to float in this space that can be viewed alternatively as divine, alienating, timeless, or without perspective.
