Memory tends to blur faces. Features fade with time, becoming inchoate. Similarly, a face photographed from behind tracing paper transforms from instantly recognizable to vaguely familiar. My photography work deals with identity, blurring the line between individuality and commonality. Using abstraction or obfuscation I alter or hide key features of my subjects to see at what point they are no longer identifiable, yet still remain essentially human. To see this trace of humanity is to see all of us in each of us.
