The Elements // Personal Project

I created these images to show the simple and natural beauty found in the elements of the earth around us and the how we, as humans, interact and feel in these environments. These photographs portray real and raw portraits in an environment and an interaction between earth and man. With each element comes a different feeling, which is up to the viewers to decide, feel and interpret.

I enjoy the way that I feel when I am in certain environments and the variations of emotions that come with each element and I wanted to capture portraits that convey some of those emotions. I believe that it is important to feed and renew the soul and one of the most successful ways I find to do so, is by being in nature; finding the beauty and simplicity in the world around us, and in each other.

Kids Were Here // Documentary

These photos were taken for my final project for my documentary photography class. I wanted to capture the essence of childhood and how you know a child has been in a certain place - by the things they sometimes leave behind that we overlook in our everyday lives. I love the simplicity and joy that children bring into the world.
