Michigan and Mississippi
Photography has been a passion of mine since I was young. Throughout life, I believe everyone feels misunderstood at one point or another, and wishes others could see things they way they do. This feeling is what fueled my passion for capturing moments in time through my eyes and sharing them with others. Capturing the everyday beauty in this world that is often taken for granted is something that inspires me. Revealing the truth of a moment in time is something that can’t be replicated, even by the same person in the same location with similar lighting, it remains truly unique. Through my work, I try to preserve something that captures my attention and makes me want to look at it over and over again, not only as a reminder of what it looked like, but the way it made me feel. This body of work represents Mississippi and Michigan, two geographic locations with a lot of history. I originally perceived these two places to have many distinct differences, but found that they are also similar in more ways than one might think.
