For a collaborative project at school, my photography class partnered with writers and a couple graphic designers to create first edition of THOM, a semi-annual magazine for the Thomasville Center of the Arts. As a group we spent two weekends traveling to the town of Thomasville, getting to know the area and the people. I was chosen to photograph the story spotlighting one of the locals, Charlie Whitney. As a great surprise at the end, one of the photographs that I had taken at his home was chosen for the cover of the magazine as well! It is my first magazine cover in print.
Lately I've introduced myself to the world of film photography. I never imagined how meditative the process of working in the darkroom could be. Still working out some kinks, but this is my first series, of many to come. For these images, I drew inspiration from lost places and forgotten things. The idea of "lost" has always fascinated me, most likely driven by my sense of discovery (which has always pushed me into unusual places). To me, re-discovering lost territory is like looking into the past, and into another world. Look for more to come!
