Artist’s Statement

I have been traveling to the small West African country of Burkina Faso annually since 2007. Most of my time is spent in Bereba, a remote rural village without electricity or running water. I photograph all aspects of daily life in the village. But I am particularly drawn to the activity in the market, the weekly Friday night dance and the landscape and workers of the Karaba brick quarry. My work draws upon traditional documentary, ethnographic and material culture approaches while remaining firmly rooted in a fine art approach.
