Family meals have always been an extensive production at my grandma¹s house.
Her tables are always beautifully set and much care is given to the
placement of each piece and an equal amount of care is shown to the food
that is presented upon the table.

Through the years I have heard so much about the stories behind the dishes.
My grandmother worries that these stories will one day be lost. As a
solution, she places handwritten notes within each of the dishes to identify
them. This practice always seemed humorous to me, yet valuable as a means of
identification.

This is a series of 12 prints called The Dance of Life. I have used different skills to show that each person is as different as the music they listen too. I used a fisheye and a wide angle lens to capture te personalities of my subjects in these two photos.

This project has become the precursor to my next project dealing with ideas of home. These photos are concentrated in a trailer park and are exploring the little things and accommodations that people do to distinguish their spaces and make them “home.” What does “home” mean to you?

I made a form for people to fill out asking what I should photograph, then had people I came across on a walk fill it out. The photos I took based on their ideas, photos of these people, and scans of the forms are all on this website: whatshouldiphotograph.com

Life is beautiful and colorful, but sometimes can be dull and cliché. In this series of photographs I wanted to explore my creativity and attempt to capture the unique aesthetic of decay. Death and decay are the darkest stages of life, but they are as important as life itself. Objects and buildings once lived through the heartbeats of people and the cycle of purpose they served before being abandoned. I tried to capture the brightness in the dull and dim, the beauty in the rust and ruined, and the memory of forsaken places in the world that will someday dissolve from the spot where they once belonged. The paradox of autumn was my inspiration. During fall all dies and life rots, but yet the leaves are brighter than ever. It is the season to remember and hope, the most human thing to feel to know you’re alive. Death is esoteric and overwhelming though the thought of it is shunned, but it is inevitable. All of us will one day cease to be, so seize the day even if it’s gray before we depart and decay.
