The photographs in these compositions were made in Mexico in 2011, while visiting a sweat lodge organized around cleans-ing rituals, practices and knowledge passed down through generations.

The Quad Format:

I often build photo montages within a square, quadrantal format, a technique in which juxtapositions are made on the basis of color and continuity... a purely objective way of exploring relationships between several images in a single composition. It is out of this objectivity that new ideas emerge, and the compositions are often left open to considerable subjective interpretation on the part of the viewer.
