Popular Photography Feature

Popular Photography did a story on me called "Two Years Out: Sound and Vision" for their April issue of Popular Photography On Campus. If you don’t have access to the magazine, check it out full screen below! 

“I have always been more interested in showing what an experience felt like rather than just showing what something looked like. I think every image is made up of the base layer of data and literal information-- but I always want my images to go beyond that layer, and show the emotional experience of what a moment feels like. [...] Photography lets you take an experience and express it in such a way that it is felt as a human story, and not just specific to one individual person or situation. As human beings we all tap into the same emotions, and as an artist I love the challenge of translating those emotions into visuals.”
