Many artists look to the world they know for inspiration whether it be their friends, family or a place. For several years, my life on film sets has been my muse. Yet, what speaks to me more than the obvious celebrity and spectacle, are the things I find when I turn my camera away from the action – off set.
Slipping behind the metaphoric curtain of center stage, I am intrigued by where the artifice of movie making and the real intermingle – the place where the seams may show, or where the trickery of illusion and performance is caught off guard. As I hunt for images that occupy this space, I become a flâneur of sorts; a solitary figure roaming the outskirts of the location, one eye studying the spectacle before me, and the other searching for things unnoticed by others – traces of the authentic within the artificial, the ordinary within the extraordinary.
