Each place we visit we find something to take with us. I believe that on some scale, we leave something of ourselves behind as well. Perhaps it is not that this act of taking in occurs simultaneously with letting go, but rather that after processing what has been absorbed, we later leave our trace in some form of thankfulness or expression of ourselves.
This year I've had the great privilege to work in five unique environments throughout the country and over sea. The things I've acquired from these settings and the travels connecting them reveal themselves more each day. Likewise, I continuously develop my awareness of what I leave behind. It has become ritual to capture each place I visit through photography. One place.One moment. One photo. What begins as an act of memorialization in time unfolds into an act of giving thanks. With these I hope to capture emotion and memory of experience and portray them with great honesty.
