I was born in 1996 in West Chester, Pennsylvania and currently reside in Phoenixville. It’s a small, haunts-worthy town, and the woods that surround my house may or may not be enchanted.
When it comes to me as a person, I particularly enjoy anything related to art. Music, writing, reading, painting, sketching, the works. However, as life has trailed on, I’ve discovered that perspective has begun to play a large role in my life. And while I continue to paint and write, I have recently realized that the best way to capture that perspective is through photography.
I enjoy capturing life through the eye of a lens and seeing the world in new and unique ways. But what I capture isn’t always what others see.
When I take a picture, I find the most ordinary objects—a shoe, a desk, or a door—and I move around. I find a spot on this object, something that snags my attention, and then I search for an angle. At what angle does this spot look like something completely different? At what point does it turn into a whole new object of its own? That’s when I snap the picture.
I believe in seeing the world in a million different ways, whether that means hanging upside down or simply looking at regular things that I’ve never taken the time to look at before. Not everything can be transferred to film, but I try to capture as much as I can, because I want the world to see what I see. Everything has the opportunity to be interesting, at the very least. We just need to learn to see things differently.
So as you explore this site, keep in mind that I want to zoom in on the ordinary and make it extraordinary. I want you to interpret the world in your own way, by seeing something different. Everyone deserves to look at life as if looking through a lens.
