ABOUT ME

Photography was the first art form that I became deeply invested in. It has always been an exploration of my unique view of the world, and more recently photography has become a way for me to reflect on our constantly changing world, specifically through the documentation of other people’s experiences. I use photography as a way to express myself, but my camera serves as a sort of barrier between my subjects and me. Photography provides me with a tool to get to know people more than I would by simply talking or interacting with them. I have found that people become their most vulnerable when in front of a camera, because they want to look their best, or be their best self. I have always been interested in process based artwork, specifically painting. In the past year I have learned to shoot with medium format and 35mm film, and then develop my rolls as well as make my own enlargements. The introduction to physically making photographs made the final product much more process based, therefore driving my interest and furthering my exploration of the medium.
