As a commercial photographer, I am a conduit for other people’s visions of themselves or brands or physical creations. Often, I feel that my work isn’t always my own; rather, it’s a collaboration, and I am just the creative vessel for final fruition. This collection of (mostly film) photographs was created during a moment of pause: a nice detour on the way to a destination that was another final project; a moment of beauty or joy shot on the way to somewhere else. They capture those fleeting, often overlooked moments in life—the time we record for ourselves instead of other people.

When I create, I often think of what Johannes Itten said, “He who wishes to become a master of color must see, feel, and experience each individual color in its endless combinations with all other colors.”. I’m also inspired frequently by love and loneliness and want folks consuming my work to be encouraged to start paying attention to the little details in everyday life, appreciate the simple things, and let them eventually inspire you! Ultimately, I’m just trying to become a mother fuckin master of color.
