The photographs in Selected People are truthful documents that are also acts of imagination. These composite photographs examine a particular place over time (a kind of a still time-lapse). I change nothing. I only select which figures to retain and omit the rest.
Like documentary photography, these unposed pictures reflect and interpret public life. Like staged photography, my work is plausible in its artifice and can imply a story. Like typologies, my work collects and present likenesses as a kind of data. Above all, my work reveals a surprising world that is visible only with a camera.
