Part of my art making process is collecting things from 99 cents stores to photograph. I scour the aisles of these stores looking for interesting items. Ive been collecting balls from these stores for many years now. I love their shapes and colors. Ive also been a little obsessed with photographing bushes outside (mostly in the suburbs). Their shapes and sizes really capture my attention. Its as if each bush has its own personality. Somehow, it seems to make sense to me to juxtapose these images together. My photobook, Bushes and Balls, is the final product of this exploration.
