about

I'm a full time undergrad student at Middle Tennessee State University working towards a bachelors in photography with plans to pursue an MFA in late 2016. I am currently working on curating several different bodies of work covering a wide range of topics and problems in photography. My photographic interests have shifted more from commercial pursuits to fine art and documentary work. In being concerned with the condition of society and our environment, I spend a large deal of time considering socially and environmentally aware topics. I devote most of my time to analog processes, spending countless hours both in the silver gelatin and RA4 darkrooms. My photography is heavily rooted in an interest of tangibility, whether through the negative or print. I now primarily work with large format view cameras and medium format film. My most driven current project is one of photographing family and home. Heavily inspired by the works of Keith Carter, Emmet Gowin, and of Sally Mann, I capture images of my relatives with a sometimes unforgiving and honest approach. I want to preserve the present as I'm concerned with how the truth within a photography shifts. This project has allowed me to learn so much more about my family and surroundings that I greatly took for granted as a child, and has opened my eyes to new ways both to work within and analyze a scene.
