Closer than they appear, n.d. (series)

Closer than they Appear is an ongoing documentary project focused on neighbourhoods in the artist’s home of east Vancouver. These images attempt to document ordinary, everyday people and places, and challenge street photography tropes depicting immigrant and working class communities. This project began with images from as early as 1993 and continues to the present. In 2000, this selection of 25 images was exhibited in the artist’s first solo exhibition at Centre A, Vancouver.

Stain, 2003 (series)

Stain is a photographic series depicting stains from leaked motor oil on wet pavement. The colourful effects of the oil stains against the pavement evoke visions of outer space and psychedelia. These works, which straddle the scientific and the phantasmagoric, explore the paradox of the abstract and the (literally) concrete in documentary photography.
