san francisco, california
I find myself through the images I make. As a veteran who takes pictures on the streets, I often feel isolated from the city that surrounds me ‐ an outsider peering in. In an attempt to better understand others, and myself, I look for deeper meaning through the act of photographing. Sometimes spontaneous, sometimes anticipated, the images I make are rooted in the mundane and routine, easily overlooked and often fleeting. Seeking out these moments has forced me to become more patient and attentive, allowing me to slow down and observe, listen instead of speak. This is my therapy.
I want to find the stage where the overt is obscured and a photograph erodes into ambiguity. This uncertain, curious space destroys the binary in favor of something much more ambiguous and interesting, creating room for deeper interpretation and dialog.
