100 photographs of animals —
These one hundred photos of animals have been selected and sorted from the thousands and thousands of digital snapshots I have taken over the last twelve years since I purchased my first digital camera. Sets of one hundred photographs are presented in small editions of five archival print boxes. By removing certain photos out of the endless stream of photos taken and putting them together into boxed collections, new relationships are forged between images that would otherwise be unrelated to one another.
