One of those visual metaphors, which regretfully can border on becoming trite, that always seems to draw me in are pathways, both narrow and wide, although the narrow ones seem to get my attention more often. I think the narrow pathways (or at least they appear narrow) are more human in scale, personal, maybe even romantic, which are meant for a person to walk along. I especially enjoy photographing those pathways when the end is not in sight, implying a potential limitless walk. These photographs also investigate a journey, real or imagined, but to where? The more ambiguous the photograph I feel create even more narrative possibilities.
