"I'm a 23 year old photographer based out of Portland, Oregon. I exclusively work with film and have recently plunged into the world of developing and scanning at home. In the beginning of my photography journey, I gravitated towards film because of the colors that can be achieved. While that's still a driving force behind much of my work, I have found that I have increasingly enjoyed the time and touch that film requires. This slowness of every step in my process allows me to better connect with my subjects. Having the ability to do my own scanning and developing has given me much more control over the final product. When choosing a subject to work with, I seek out those that historically haven't been given space in mainstream media. I strive to create unique and powerful images that show the beauty of those that are deemed to be a little different. One of my favorite things about shooting is being able to get to know such beautiful and talented people. Photography has allowed me to connect, slow down, but most importantly create."
