I got back home last night! I spent the last 6 months travelling the US and living out of my car and staying with friends and working on my photo book. It’s been the best time of my life. I’ll be working on a bunch of stuff and hopefully posting more again soon

Anonymous asked: can you talk about meaning behind some of your work?
Yeah for sure, I think my earlier work was definitely more of a coping mechanism. Pure emotional discharge, kind of going off at shitty things that happened to me when I was a kid. The idea of growing up fast and lost childhood is a common motif in my work; sometimes very general, and sometimes based on specific events. I kind of would hold onto these moments and use them creatively, but lately I’ve been feeling really good. I’ve been letting go and allowing myself to be happier. I’m working on a new series based of memories and the way the mind distorts them. A lot of stuff is more simple; I grew up on horror movies and use that as an influence often. Or shooting very limited portraits (ex: only legs, arms etc) and trying to tell a story. I don’t know. I kind of rambled so haa

Anonymous asked: Do you have an approximate idea for how much the book will be? Or you have to see how many pictures you like yet? ^_^
I’m planning on selling it for around $55 (pretty standard price for an art book). Large, maybe 11x14 inches, hard cover, and around 120 pages or so. Signed unless people want it not to be haa
Still working it all out though so thats not all set in stone.

levelseeker asked: Are the people you meet on your travels, people youve met before? or are they randoms youve acquainted with on the road/ via the internet. Have you known them before at all?
Maybe half I knew before, and half I had never met before. Although most of the people I did know before have become much closer friends than before the trip. I’ve made so many friends on the road, coming home is going to be so bittersweet

thecoolcontinues asked: What housing do you use to shoot underwater?
I think this is the exact one I bought. I also use my old Canon 60D because I’m paranoid about ruining my mark II

I’ve been living out of my car and travelling for almost 6 months now. Here are some random candid/sort of candid photos I took recently. Pretty much all on the west coast. Click for captions
