Artist Statement:

Forensic foraging emphasizes the trite, trivial, & mundane. The genre downplays extensive computer intervention. Basic photography skills such as composition and framing are important. The technique also flourishes because of high color saturation & contrast. Everything we encounter is shot and then selectively presented. You have to get out and shoot a lot to succeed with this approach.
