bloom







Bloom is the beginnings of a new project, which will be book based. It will contain imagery that serves as a created document of the life I have with the people I surround myself with-- my friends, and poetry. It's focus is to be on youth, what it means for me, and how the fear of losing that, of "growing up" drives me to make this work.

youth and exploration





As much as it's being done now, I really want to photograph moments of youthful exploration. I need something new, but still something that I connect to, much like with the work surrounding my family and my hometown. This is something that I can create about my friends, the people I surround myself with and those I connect to on a different level than family and place. Through spending time with these people I care about and connect to, I want to take portraits of them. I do not want a typical candid documentation like a lot of the work being created. I want to organize and have control of my imagery and subjects, while still utilizing a sudden feeling or need to take the photograph that comes with being in the moment. I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense just yet and I need to take some pictures of the males in my life, here are some examples either way:
