“I photograph to trace the invisible threads that connect people and places otherwise separated by time and distance. The light carving a portal in Massachusetts is the same light bouncing off a mirror shard in Puerto Rico.
The images emerged from reflecting on the ways people relate to place, history, imagination, and community in the dispersion of diasporic life. I imagine and photograph scenes that give shape to the fragmented and temporal experiences of existing in between. Through this work, I consider how belonging may be conjured from fragments.” —GB
Working predominantly in photography, her work considers how people shape and relate to place, history, imagination, and community. Her recent works explore the latter in the context of diasporic life.
