"Nostalgia is a big part of who I am. Even though I moved away from the San Fernando Valley when I was 17, I am continuously drawn back there photographically. Even now, I’m photographing in landscapes that are very familiar, where I used to play as a kid — the terrain of scruffy nature that lies between one suburban development and another. In that sense the landscape of my childhood and what has to stand for the staging ground American Dream intersect and allow me to explore both."
