Hiding In My Closet…

A Self Portrait

A Self Portrait

A Self Portrait for #tbt
Isn’t funny how we can forget the person we used to be? I’ve been doing a lot of growth and self-improvement lately. So when I rediscovered this photograph I was kind of blow away by how the “person I am trying to be” was sitting there looking up at me from the past.

Now, I’m not saying I want to revert to that person I was. I’ve learned a lot since then and grown in many good ways. However, I’ve also been knocked around by life a lot since then, and I think I lost a few things I loved very much on the way.

I’m not sure exactly what the lesson here is. If there is one at all.

I just wanted to share this little part of my personal journey; something I’ve never been that interested in doing in the past. I’m very excited to see where my long and winding road takes me.

What else will I find

The Patron Saints of Forgotten Photographs

As an avid antique loiterer and thrift store hunter, I often come across people’s old photographs that they are selling. When ever I find them I’m always very excited! I find them to be bizarre looks into people’s life, as a photographer I have always been fascinated in peeking into other people’s lives. I was the child who, on Halloween, was more excited to see in strangers homes than the candy. On the other side, they all have a deep feeling of sadness. Whomever these people are in the photographs, their memories are not just being thrown away but monetized.

 While looking through one of these stacks of old photographs I found a beautiful portrait of a woman, by not means perfect, technically, but it was very moving. This inspired an ongoing series of portraits of women. stylized to emulate the look and style of old photographs. The women I photograph are ment to have the same hunting impact of the portrait I found. These women are The Patron Saints of Forgotten Photographs.

Series is on going so be on the look out for updates
