Embodied spaces

My work has taken me across borders between states, cities, and their hinterlands, as well as natural and built environments. While a substantial part of my research is captured in the narratives of the people I work with and my own written texts, some moments elude the authority of spoken and written words. They are moments of dim afternoon light, tessalating alignments of nature and city shapes, and infrastructural forms of systems that enable some lives while effacing others. Human bodies are present in all of them—either in motion or a moment of suspension. I try to capture these fleeting seconds in my photographs: they are never staged but instead serve as a document of and to multiply embodied time-spaces.

 

To me, a photograph is not a statement but a question; it bears witness to the whys and hows of movement and direction, the ways of being in and of this world. Therefore, in this series, I do not capture human subjects in my photographs, I do not show close-ups of their faces, nor intend to clearly define the subject of my work. Instead, in each of these photographs, I ask how we, as humans, come to live as part of social and material landscapes and how through it our experience and consciousness become a part of—embody—these spaces.
