HISTORICALS

These images are from a series I'm still tentatively calling "Historicals". It looks at past and present co-inhabiting space. Based on the "Metaphysical Town Square" paintings Giorgio de Chirico made in the years before WWI, it's also informed by more contemporary photographic works by Joel Sternfeld, Stan Douglas and Philip-Lorca diCorcia.

These works are constructs. Some have been built to contrive vague narratives and some to make tight spaces photographable. They are somewhat fictive, somewhat documentary. Neither category describes the group well. I’m okay with that.
