Can such depictions be a portal into our innermost selves? This question is where my work begins, seeking places that speak to me, points of translation. East New York is one such place where the elevated line is so massive it weighs down the soul, yet the most oppressive shadows still yield to illumination. My goal is not to document but present a borderland that encourages trespass, that invites journey."
