Why do you photograph on film?
I view working with film as a meditative process. It allows me better space to slow down, be more present, and greatly consider what it is I want to create.

What is your work about?
The root of my photographic practice stems from personal history and trauma. As a result, I use photography as an act of therapy: a way to analyze, understand, and heal from experience. In my most recent series, After You, I incorporate self-portraiture, staged imagery, and return to places of my past to investigate spaces altered by experience, presence and withdrawal.
