about listening quiet…
These words repeat like a cycling mantra. It’s a sorting process and an exercise. Parsing through a container of cut-ups, a camera loaded with captures, and a room filled with work in progress.

The results are images that weigh in on grit and character. An art form and precarious craft. The fickle business of catching sparks and the painstaking task of shaking it all loose from the walls of a little black box.
