Since 2006, I have been traveling to the American South to take photographs. Apart from the boxes of prints, the numerous trips during these sixteen years had only yielded unsettling interests than definition of place or people. There is always more to the photograph than what is depicted within the image, more questions than answers.



“What If” is a lens to examine the rural communities in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina across the time span of more than a decade. Rather than a compilation of documentation, the book looked beyond and disassembled individual images. In the end, it reassembled a montage to seek a question to ask.
