Reconciliations (Photographs)
Digital photographs 2007- on going
The series Reconciliations uses appropriated imagery of various international cities to create imagined utopian spaces and landscapes in order to explore and subvert historic, geographic and political boundaries. The photographs bring together disparate spaces based on real or imagined relationships. New York and Tokyo, Lima and Santiago, Ramallah and Jerusalem are situated within nations that are or have been at war with one another. Havana and Pyongyang are bound by political ideology, while (Mumbai) India was a colony of (London) Britain. The source images for this series are culled from the Internet – photographs of different cities by anonymous individuals merged into one modified, unified vision of the world.
