Civil Atrocitiesa series of photographed tableaus created with children's toy soldiers and dolls are rooted in the nostalgia of youthful, imaginative play, where toys were often stand-ins for a child’s simplistic view of right and wrong, good and evil. As an adult living through the present-day horrors of a global pandemic, racial genocide, mass shootings, climate change, and American Nationalism, my photographs represent the struggle to escape the destruction, chaos, and fear threatening our present-day survival, as well as an apocalyptic future.
