“Tracings, vol. 1″ (Familial Snapshots, 2019)


“My mind often wanders to the fragmented memories exposed on the collection of 4x6 prints in the blue storage bin. On occasion I would pull that bin out from it’s hiding place and flip through stacks of images while half watching ‘I Love Lucy’ reruns. This was a habit of mine. It was a habit for me to sit with the moments that passed in the blink of the shutter release. To have the time to process the facial expressions, the color of the grass in the summer light, the energy in the room. To have a still moment to focus.”

“Full” (2021)


I go days without speaking,

turning my mind off to fans

cutting through the silence

My cup reaching its limit

overflowing, flooding over the lip

full

“I was the same, but different somehow” (Color Digital Print, 2017)


This image was taken a year before I knew the status of my diagnosis. Back when I knew something was off, but I couldn’t put my finger on what. Funny how sometimes we can’t see what is starring right back at us in the mirror.
