Artist Statement:

In Flatland, originally written by Edwin Abbot, squares and sticks go about their business in a two dimensional realm. The greater beings, the three dimensional spheres and cubes, can observe the flatlanders without their existence ever being known. My series, Flatlanders, imagines our own world like Flatland, making us aware of the limits of our perception. Standing on a ladder, 10 feet above my subjects, I captured moments of daily life. Common spaces and objects lose their recognizability, appearing more like simple colors and shapes. The people fade into anonymity, becoming amoebas milling about their lives. The viewer feels like a benign omniscient being, observing the world below, intimately perceiving us as flatlanders.
