Binghamton, New York. Born 1991.
q: Your pictures show lots of outdoors, water bodies and bodies in water. Would you say you are drawn to the outdoors (or water, for that matter)?
a: Definitely. My fondness memories growing up in upstate NY involve going to my grandmothers lake house, running around hitting rocks into the water with a baseball bat. So I think that I’m continuously trying to recapture that feeling. And people are too used to living on top of one another, when you get out outdoors you get a certain burst of energy and let your guard down.
q: When you present these personal photos, are you inviting the viewer to experience some kind of escapism?
a: I don’t necessarily think of it like that. I’m just trying to preserve the moments I want to, I’m not interested in taking sad images. But in a way I guess you’re right.
q: Which stationary do you find the most intimidating?
a: Wedding invitations
q: Any new music to recommend?
a: Jennifer Herrema’s new band Black Bananas new album is killer. Also check out Skaters a side project of the band The Dead Trees, they just released a free ep through they’re website.
