Photography brings my wandering mind back to focus on the present. More often then I'd like to admit I find myself so freaked out by all the thoughts in my mind I don't know what to do with myself. My images are an escape from the overload of back and forth thoughts. Representing encounters that get my brain back on track. The things that snap me back to reality.
The world around us speaks to all of us on a different level. Our minds are so unique, giving us each the opportunity to process, and acknowledge, whats right in-front of us in completely different ways. Our ideas of reality are our own. The images here are my reality. This is how I see the world.
