A Shot in the Dark is an ongoing inquiry into spaces both real and imagined. These photographs are created using a long camera exposure, a technique in photography that blurs the moving parts of an image and manipulates the light recorded by the camera without the use of Photoshop. The physical process of assembling and manipulating mirrors, glass, fabric, photographs, and mundane objects is illuminated by candlelight and reflections. The fragmented landscapes are constructed with photographs from personal archives, often found on the internet, to build connections between memory and the precarious nature of truth and transformation. Unremarkable images connected to my father, like photographs of his hand or of his backyard I photographed as a child, are reassembled to coalesce objects, images, and allude to underlying narratives. Elements seen and unseen are entangled using mimicry and abstraction to test the limitations of the medium of photography itself.
