about

Currently, I am based in Olympia Washington where I am one of the interns in the EMIAP at The Evergreen State College. A little about me as a photographer:

When I was gifted a camera during the pandemic, I was gifted far more than I could have ever expected. I find myself challenging the norms and rules society puts on us as humans as a photographer. Starting college with the goal of working in the field of Sociology or Psychology, these subjects have shaped the way I approach photography. The impact of learning about the Labeling Theory or Theories of Socialization were far greater than I could have ever anticipated.

Most recently I have been investigating breaking the rules and pushing boundaries both in photography and within myself. Toying with soft focus, rich black shadows, and abstracting the body, "Finding Lillian Valovic" has pushed me to analyze my body, my textures, and my entire being in a deeply intimate way.

While closely examining my body and person during this project, I have been finding myself looking for the "why". "Why does society feel the need to place a microscope on the female form?" "Why do I feel the need to abide by societal standards of the female form?" "Why do I feel compelled to explore these subjects in my photography?" "Why do I need to abide by the rules of photography?" "Why am I taking this picture?" "Why does this picture matter?" These are questions that I have been working through during the creation of recent projects. They have lit a fire in me that I plan to continue to fuel in a masters program.
