Photography became my creative escape in 2020. While it has always been a love of mine, this year it took on a new role in my affair with art. An affair that was overshadowed by the demands of everyday life, finally was given space to come to life. In a lot of ways, the photos here are personal to me. They remind me of my perseverance as I stood on the shoreline four nights in a row struggling to capture a single shot of the bioluminescence. And that, juxtaposed the grim canvas of the world, beauty can be found in a sunset. In the end, I hope they provide a shared experience or emotion between you and me.
Food photography has become my jam! It’s an outlet that fills both my soul and my stomach. This year, I took on the responsibilities of feeding a sourdough starter and made me some bread. With more time in the kitchen, I also chipped away at learning some of my mother’s recipes, and took photos along the way.
