Strangers Project – “15 Strangers, 1 Canvas”

This project was a collaboration project between me and my friend and classmate, Beau Morris. We went down to long beach one sunny Wednesday afternoon with just my camera, a canvas, and some paint. As people passed by on the walk-way, we would ask them if they wanted to take a moment to be a part of our project. If they agreed, then we’d have them pick a color of paint and they’re only requirement was to connect, in any way they chose, two sides of the canvas. Afterwards, I would take a picture of them holding the canvas so as to see their contribution. In the spreads below, the dot on the opposite side of the spread is the color they contributed. Our hope is to make this into a physical, perfect-bound book soon.

Thank you to all those who were a part of this project.

“Identity” Series

Hey everyone,
This is a recent series I did for a class project. The project was only to have a series of 20 images, but I came up with the direction I wanted to take it. Please read the artist statement below if you want to understand better my intent. Otherwise, enjoy and please leave a comment or share if you are feeling in the Christmas spirit. Thanks

         “For the first 17 years of my life, I probably tried harder to be like my somebody else than I tried for any other thing. However, there came a point, where I was tired of not claiming an identity of my own. But what identity should I claim? Eventually, I became more concerned about what I stood for than who I thought I was.
Sometimes we have the natural inclination to inhabit the spaces between light and shadow. So what is it that we allow to be illuminated in our lives? What defines us? With my work, I like to entertain the friction between identity and illumination. What do we allow to be shown and how does it reflect in our lives?”
