New York City, USA.
q: Give a short intro about yourself.
a: I’m 23 and living in Brooklyn. I’ve been practicing and studying photography since I was about 18, and I’m pretty much image obsessed. I studied marketing in college, but everything I did in my spare time revolved around photography. I love practicing my own craft, but I get just as excited about other people’s work. A lot of my close friends are amazing photographers, and ultimately I want to be a rep. I want to get photographers work, I want them to get paid, and want them to be recognized.
q: What’s your series “Soft Camouflage” about?
a: Soft Camouflage was a collaboration project with Ted Rogers, a talented cinematographer and photographer. We shot it for GAUGE magazine, the series is a response to the issue’s theme, instinct. I wanted to communicate the tradition of getting your photograph taken. It’s something humans have wanted since photography was invented. A picture of themselves, of their family. We took it a step further, blurring the subject’s face, to address the inherent survival tactic of recognizing, or unconsciously creating faces in repeating patterns.
q: Any upcoming projects or ideas?
a: I’ve actually got a lot of projects goin at the moment! A couple close friends and I are starting an online magazine, The Landing and I got some great talent signed on. The issue is currently being designed, and it’s going to look amazing. I’m also a part of Family Family Tree and we’re working on some collaborative stuff. I’ve partnered up with Christopher D. Thompson to create a strictly photography zine. I have a feeling it’s going to be good.
q: Any new music to recommend?
a: Right now I’m listening to Young Man, Vol. 1.
