"Neighborland" is photographs and writings about places in and around Chicago. I am interested in relationships between place and people. Neighborland shares my encounters and travels through urban and rural spaces around Chicago. I consider the ways individuals both create and are created by the places through which we move.

I am a photographer and educator. I investigate what it is to be a photographer now, and how the medium of photography can both shape and be shaped by our perception of the physical world around us. The ephemeral nature of photography in the digital age is still grounded in the physical. Photographs for me are a visual translation of a physical experience, however fleeting or permanent.
