I find that the most comfortable place for me to exist is behind the camera. I feel very unconnected to the world most of the time. I am physically present but always seem just outside of what is happening, an autonomous spectator. This constant feeling is what fuels my need to understand and experience what drives people to connect. I see in the world the need for it, the ways people try to achieve it, and on many levels enjoy it, but fail to truly grasp it for myself. I am just beginning this exploration, and as I flesh out my body of work, the ideas I am attempting to put into words here will be a visually cohesive body of work. I see this as a long term, large scale, project.
I shoot 35mm film on a Nikon F2 camera and am moving into the world of medium format photography. I plan to travel, immersing myself into places and events that speak to my visual narrative of human connectivity. I am a beginner and self taught photographer still learning all the time!
