I am interested in how public spaces influence our experience. The images in Blind Views show the rich amalgamation of cultural signs that make up the visual infrastructure of the street. I am particularly drawn towards spaces that, because of their apparent neutrality, offer numerous possibilities of interpretation.

The work was inspired by Baudelaire’s essay The Painter of Modern Life, which asks us to distill from the quotidian its mysterious beauty, however minimal it may be.
