My photographs incorporate prefabricated HO scale figures (often used by model railroad hobbyists) placed in natural and constructed site-specific landscapes. The images are akin to dioramas, but created in actual places. These photographs are not a result of superimposing existing images into a compositional collage. Instead, they result from traveling to places and setting up scenes using miniatures, sometimes constructing my own props, and relying on available light. Since the small-scale figures are less than one inch in size, photographs are the only way to see the “scenes” depicted in these temporary dioramas.
