A Reminder to Remember on Film
Time has gotten more slippery recently. Work has started to consume more of me (or my time, I suppose), which actually makes me quite happy because I’m one of those few lucky humans who happens to love (obsess over) her job. But still, it’s hard to process everything when it passes by so quickly and […]
The Central Coast + David’s Birthday
We went exploring and camping for five days all along the California Central Coast for David’s birthday. It’s a truly beautiful area.
Lindsey + Joshua Tree + Palm Springs + Malibu
My best friend since I was in elementary school came from Charleston to explore Southern California with me. We laughed until we cried next to our camp fire in Joshua Tree, explored gardens in Palm Springs and lay in the sand in Malibu, and naturally I made her pose in the pretty light a couple […]
Amber + A Field of Gold
I love California. I moved here about a year and a half ago and have explored all over–deserts, forests, beaches. The diverse landscapes have been so visually inspiring to me. (If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen David’s and my #westcoastexplorersclub posts, I’m sure. It’s pretty obvious that we really love our new home.) […]
The Fountain of Youth
This is the start of a new project on The Fountain of Youth Spa and RV Park in the middle of nowhere in the desert of Southern California, just 6.5 miles from the fish bone covered shore of the apocalyptic Salton Sea. This group of photos is only from two days and two nights that […]
Memphis: Music Eden
In 2011, I went to Memphis with a writer for a story about rap in Memphis for FADER. I’d never been to the city before and was dumbfounded by the music, everywhere. It spilled into streets from garages, cars, clubs, karaoke halls. I knew I had to come back.
Snapshots From Greece
I shot 223 photos on a little point and shoot film camera in Greece. (I also shot a handful of iPhone photos, and two dozen digital slr photos, before I packed that camera away).
Back to Sun City, Again
Self-publishing a limited edition book on my years spent photographing the residents of Sun City, Arizona didn’t stop me from returning last December for a German publication, or this month for myself. Now that I’m based in California, I can wake up in LA and make it to Sun City by sunset. It’s the place […]
Sequoia National Park and the Importance of Feeling Small
You get wrapped up in all the tiny dramas of life and then you stand under a 2,500-year-old 200 foot sequoia tree and are reminded that you are just a beautiful microscopic blip in the grand scheme of things. You head home three days later knowing there are far more stars than you’d ever seen […]
