Bio | Whitman, BA Biology | Montana State University, MFA Documentary Film Photographic images have always had an alluring and magical quality to them. Their indexical relationship to the material world allows them to be perceived as a holder of objective truth. As someone trained in the sciences, but now working as a documentarian and cinematographer I enjoy playing with imaging technology developed for science and industry. Tools such as high-speed digital cameras offer a unique insight into the world and the resulting images provides a suitable site to explore the nature of representation.
