My photographs of anonymous sites around Galveston Island depict a sense of loneliness and abandonment. I’m intrigued by the remnant of the temporal inhabitant — the nearly collapsed fence, the oil stain on the road, the half-opened curtains of the motel room by the sea. These fragments create a sense of simultaneous presence and absence that shrouds the space with mystery and invites the possibility of alternative narratives.
