Waite’s photographs are in many ways an exploration of the ordinary. The images point to the intrinsic narrative that takes place around us, pulling us into the story mid-stream; there we find an air of recognition but also something utterly foreign. Waite, whose beginnings were as a painter and installation artist, has always used photography as a sort of sketchbook; however, in recent years the photographs have taken a central role in his work. Waite studied fine art at SVA in New York and lives and works in the East Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia.
