I love that photography is like freezing the time it takes to blink. When light is beautiful, I love that there is a small machine that I can use to capture it. Photographs are conversations and feelings and experiences for me. I have had a practical connection to the medium from childhood and have cycled through Instamatics, 35mm SLRs, photo assistant jobs in London and New York, working as a photojournalist in rural South Carolina, and now am I a high school art teacher doing my part to keep creativity and analogue photography going.
I shoot all formats of film from 35mm to 4x5" sheet. I also enjoy using digital cameras, polaroids, and expired photo paper.
