Artist Statement
This series was taken during a tough emotional time in my life. I had just separated from my ex wife, and was seeing someone, which was a terrible idea. I would take these close up shots of tiny things in my tiny apartment. I would stay up till three or four in the morning, taking shot after shot of tiny things. I think I needed to feel in control, and if I focused on the tiny things closest to me, I wouldn’t have to focus on the crappy bigger picture.
