Series > Fragments of the Everyday

The Fragments of the Everyday series is inspired by the act of people-watching. Together, the selected image fragments sidestep the expected, singular photographic moment while recovering an approximation of people-watching, informing a necessarily incomplete, open-ended, and biased synthesis of observed passersby within an everyday public space. Just as in people-watching, I pick up on only the most notable external signifiers of who those depicted are via their appearance, apparent relationships, and activities. The resulting constellations of imagery represent social image-texts that withhold authoritative, quickly legible narratives in favor of slow, investigative reading. Viewers participate by reenacting the interpretive processes of people-watching, using the visual information and relative juxtapositions of provided imagery as clues to develop their own estimations of identities and narratives. I hope to implicate viewers as actively constructing their view of Others from influential social paradigms in which we all participate and shape over time.
