In keeping with the ephemeral nature of the photographic process, the artist handcrafted a 4x5 camera and fashioned lenses out of ice. The artist worked in collaboration with 3D-printing technologists to fabricate lens moulds, which she then used to freeze local water. The images, captured on 4x5 film, impart vistas in Reykjavík, Iceland.
The title They are lost as soon as they are made quotes Halldór Laxness' epic novel Independent People, and speaks to the material and immaterial aspects of the project - optics, time, light, and weather. Furthermore, the work explores the possibilities of deconstructing the mechanics of image-making, and of capturing the natural landscape with elements of nature itself.

Weathering explores representations of landscape deployed through a range of photographic processes, from silver gelatin prints to laser-cut inkjet prints on silk. As material responses, the photographs function as topographical skins that shift between surface and image.

A public art project created specifically for various storefront windows, Vitrine is a series of 14 subtle photographic gestures in conversation with the possibilities of display. The window serves as a point of departure, functioning as a threshold between interior and exterior spaces and as an aperture that frames our field of vision.
Presented in partnership by Capture Photography Festival and the South Granville Business Improvement Association.

Light & Variation
Light & Variation is a body of photographic work that visually experiments with dimension, light, and materiality. Constructed in the studio and photographed with 4x5 and 8x10 cameras, the complex arrangements are grounded in analogue and hands-on processes.
Pierre/Paysage [meaning Stone/Landscape] is a collection of 10 photographic images that presents transformed representations of space. Printed as black-and-white C-prints, the images show layers of acetate cut into different geometric shapes that have been carefully placed and lit to construct formal arrangements. The images articulate the possible representational slippages in the visual language of cartography, topography, and three-dimensional models.
