I had a pretty hectic upbringing, with frequent moves across lots of geography. The question “where are you from?” paralyzes me. I never lived in a place for long, and photography became a way to take in the feeling of a place at a human pace. It hammered into me that the world is as orderly as it is chaotic, as absurd as it is rational, and as much a paradise as it is a hell.
I am currently studying art at UCLA, and I am pursuing a career in photojournalism.
