Road trip season is upon us once again.
I downloaded a ton of photos from my phone tonight to make some space on it, and started going through the ones I had taken around this time last year. These were some of my favorites.
I shot the lovely Dana Landon for City Art’s lifestyle column last month. She produces a great fashion blog of Seattleites that I definitely recommend checking out called It’s my Darlin.
Excited to be a part of this upcoming photo show with such inspiring women in Seattle.
Here is a little something I had to say about my work in regards to the event:
“What moves me about… what’s called “technique”… is that it comes from some mysterious deep place. It can have something to do with the paper and the developer and all that stuff, but it comes mostly from some very deep choices somebody has made that take a long time and keep haunting them.” –Diane Arbus
I really like thinking of one’s voice, or technique in their work as something that continues to haunt them, as Diane states. One of the things that I continue to develop through my own photographs is taking women out of the norm of the usual beauty shot, and bringing things in to a more strange place. Women are so much more than just a pretty face to look at. I enjoy bringing the weird, wild, and sometimes dark parts of them forward in my portraits, because that is what I find interesting and empowering about us.
A few unseen photos from my series ‘On the Shores of Aurora’ that I premiered at Slideluck Potshow here in Seattle last November.
Don’t tell mama.
