ARTIST'S STATEMENT //
While my Holga work captures the energy and motion of the city, my more recent work is more quiet. These images are culled from my eight years of shooting for Instagram, taken on my morning walks, primarily in the East Village where I live. My subjects here are objects, spills, and other things found on the street or sidewalk itself. These things are ephemeral in nature...that what I am shooting will likely be gone or changed at any moment. As with the Holga, I enjoy the element of chance in my work; I never know what I will find. To me few subjects are out of bounds; what might be considered trash to others is for me an opportunity to find beauty and the possibility for self-expression.
