I use a 4x5 camera in order towork precisely and often I amfascinated by the smallest ofdetails. In the series SandysDeli I found piles and layers ofthings and objects that in theirdisarray made rhythmicjuxtapositions. I am interested inhow the accumulation of stuff canbe peeled away to reveal somethingpoetic and intensely personaleven within a public space like aKorean deli. Through thisphotographic investigation of aplace my parents corner store I create a portrait of my parentswithout ever pointing the cameradirectly at them.
