In the Bronx, there is an over-abundance of advertisements, usually targeted at the poor and irrelevant to the community. To me, this highlights a disconnect within the local culture, describing a community that is striving for new-ness. I find that while the other outer boroughs have begun to flourish in recent years, the Bronx seems to have been left behind. All throughout the city, we see that when re-construction comes, and renovation arrives, money is soon to follow. On the contrary, the Bronx has always had the reputation of being underdeveloped underrepresented. Due to this lack of attention that it has experienced, the borough as a whole is constantly the last to reap the benefits of change. This underlying detachment is something that I am trying to convey through my images.

The images in Do Not Yield To Evil provide an multi-dimensional look at these spaces. Although intimate, I want these urban spaces to feel alienated from the rest of the world. The work that I create does not contain humans and often utilizes decoys to compensate for that absence.  I find that in my own work, portraits can disrupt the tension between intimacy and alienation.  Through imagery of objects, I am able to characterize my personal sentiment towards these areas.  From refuse to advertisements, it is important to understand that I am drawn to the spaces of the humans, but not towards the humans themselves.
