812 Welch is a series about how light, color, and form can work together to generate an emotional response to a specific space. The vibrance of the red light that shone through the curtain over the door in my apartment on Welch street, "812 Welch", affected everything within. I made these photographs in pursuit of the essence of that particular red and the experience of a sort of total immersion in it. Some may view the images as dark, but I hope the subtleties serve to engage the viewer on a more personal level, allowing them to spend more time investigating the work from both aesthetic and emotional perspectives. It is necessary to 'turn down' the lights in order to see the show.
