My work investigates how the construction of the human subject may or may not be independent from acts of–and a culture of–consumption. American commerce offers broad opportunities for individuals to re-describe themselves while simultaneously, through advertising and media imagery, proposing contrived and set categories for consumers to simulate. I capture moments and explore environments where subjects are caught negotiating these two poles–one of sweeping possibility and self-recreation, the other of handed-down poses and acquiescence to the constraints of overriding trends and fads. In Wide Receivers I examine how society and human behavior are becoming simultaneously tribalized and atomized amidst the ever increasing noise of mass (over)communication, digital media, and self-broadcasting. My photographs are digital collages constructed from images that I shoot at public relations and networking events and at meet-ups of subcultures that were formed and (or) are operating as a result of social connectivity on the Internet.
