Selected Exhibitions
2009

Midwest Photographers Project, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, Illinois.
"Serving as a postscript to the MP3, Volume Two exhibition, the works exhibited here ... remind us that while photographs may function as visual traces of the world around us, they are also products of the photographer's subjective eye and allow for a wide range of individual interpretations."

Midwest Photographers Project - subtext series, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, Illinois
"The torn paper's jagged edges and veins of color sometimes resemble cave paintings, sometimes mountain peaks, breaking waves, or dancing flames. While hard lines and soft textures build formal interest, angled perspectives give depth to the planar surface, further shifting the layered strips from their original context."
