Abstract

This series is a long-term project documenting my own interaction with urban architecture. Distanced or completely separated from human scale, the physical connection with the setting is lost, allowing the work to represent my own frustrations and feelings of alienation. Throughout the life of this project, those feelings have changed. My frustration with the dehumanizing nature of capitalism drove me to photograph what I viewed as “corporate” architecture, intent on showing the viewer the frustration and alienation that I felt so strongly. Over its lifespan however, this series became an introspective exploration as much as it is a representation of physical and societal structures. What I discovered was, that the more I photographed and articulated those feelings, the more questions I had, and the more I needed to find a way to hold onto my own humanity that felt so diminished.
