a poet photographer


& community work

I've chosen a few select images that showcase the community work and the collaborations that I'm especially proud of - because they have challenged me, forced me to re-think what I think my art is, and opened new avenues of expression and opportunity. I often forget that my photographs aren't just "mine" - that when I work with my community in a good way, these images also belong to them. So that has often meant opening up myself to taking more guidance, trusting myself when told "do what you need to do," and understanding that sometimes, my final image is a mix between my client's dream and my understanding of it.


Each image has relevant tags listed under information for more in-depth reading, as well as links to the artists I've worked with.
