Between the Devil and the City

Between the Devil and the City is a body of work that uses my own life experiences as a basis to channel a variety of different themes that include loss, memory, religion, masculinity, and legacy. It had been ten years since I had left home and I had sworn that I never would return. I had been back for funerals, birthdays, and other occasions, but not long enough to make sense of the place that I called home.
Feeling a desire to settle down, I came back to Southern New Jersey. Contemplating the reasons I left and the reasons I returned I use photography as a tool to explore and to meditate on the area. Taking inspiration from music and literature I use a non-narrative approach to image making and build associations with images in a style that is similar to poetry.
