Hometown - 1982-2015
What started as an art school assignment 33 years ago slowly evolved and became a long term project of photographing the daily lives in the town where I grew up and still reside. I remember being somewhat jealous of my classmates because they all lived in the city with lots of things to photograph while I had only a quiet sleepy town. Yet, what struck me was something my teacher said, "You can travel the world over photographing exciting things, but a skilled photographer can find material right in their own backyard." This is what resonated and encouraged me to look, observe, and to ultimately learn how to see and interpret what was right before me.
