"Reel" is a photographic series featuring bound, academic anthologies of Film Journals. The placement of the anthologies and intimacy of the shots creates a visual dialogue with a long history of film production and critique. A single volume of "Women & Film" stands alone in a dark abyss, a nod to the historic lack of women in the film and television industry. "Illusions" lean against each other, harkening to the individual photographic frames that together create the grand illusion of movement that is cinema (made possible as well by the "Sighlines" of our two eyes). In this series, "Cinema" fills up the entire screen with its black letters on orange binding, threatening to go out of frame...a suggestion of the continued evolution and advancement of film. Ultimately, the portraits of film journals acts as both a love letter to, and critique of, cinema itself.
