I think of my involvement in photography is that of a cultural anthropologist. The photograph, "One Love"; Jamaica 2004 is an example of this concept. I frequently use an aesthetic strategy that involves various contradictions within the frame. In this instance, it's the "Ideal" represented by the painted mural, and the "Real" represented by the 'No Urine' sign. It is the information carried by both signs together -- which creates a complex question about perception and society.
