Morning Stroll, October 2017
Silver gelatin print
9 x 7 1/4 inches

This photograph was not planned, but ended up being emblematic of a morning stroll in two aspects. As the photographer, what’s captured in the frame is representative of what I get to see when I go for a walk, but it also captures someone else as they stroll through campus.

I want to give credit to Professor Mark Kirchner for this photograph.  He saw the potential of what the photograph would be like if I took a picture of a floor light outside of Founders, so thank you!

Often we long for things that others have, whether it be acceptance, love, or happiness. However, if we look within ourselves, we'd often be able to find exactly what we were yearning for.

Nature vs. Nurture, December 2015

"You cannot carry nature with you, but you carry images of nature. When you go out to make a picture you find you are moved by something which is in agreement with an image you already held within yourself." - Frederick Sommer

a key to an open world, March 2014
9.5 x 7.25 inches

This piece has been created through a manual double exposure during the development process. By dodging and only projecting parts of two different images onto light sensitive photo paper, I was able to create this mystic scene. Film photography is raw and very straightforward unlike digital photography, but with the key of imagination there are endless possibilities. Through my years in SUA I realized this universal principle: When we learn, we're learning the basic building blocks of each subject. These elements amount to nothing unless you utilize them to build something of your own. Your imagination is the key to the world.
