Phantom (Jorge the Wanderer) , 2011
from the series The Barking Wall

This is an image of the invisible man. He is a figure that chooses when he wants to be seen, but can disappear at any moment, leaving behind a pile of empty clothes and perhaps smoke. It is an image based on the disappearance of my uncle, Jorge, who vanished in the summer of 99’ from his house in Albuquerque, NM. I was thirteen at the time and moments like that, along with a series of strange happenings of my time in New Mexico still stir within me. It matters not if Jorge is still alive or not, his flesh is invisible but his idea lives on in our minds. I often wonder what he doing, where is he hiding out, if he is alive and what the people around him think of him.
