The last few years I have been making photographs I describe as "tangles". They are of rose bushes, ocean waves, the banks of the Gowanus Canal, amusement park rides, trees, and distressed ground. What I am trying to capture is "the act of seeing". Since mid 2011, my work is multiple exposures reassembled into single compositions with some of the work printed as large as 20 feet long.
