WANDERING (TOPOGRAPHIES) (2014-Ongoing) documents sites marked by memories of encounters with men but visualized as straight documentary landscapes devoid of sentimentality. Collectively, the images are a forensic mapping of personal desire, a visual diary framed by the rigor of straight photographic representation. Using only references to a name and the street, the lack of detail hints at a clandestine, even closeted, rendezvous of which the only evidence of the encounter is an image taken after the fact. Wandering (Topographies) is visually and stylistically inspired by Eugene Atget and the photographers of the New Topographics. The banal repetition and severe geometry of the built Southern California landscape serves as a backdrop for an intense, if fleeting, intimacy.
