A ,22 years old, photographer and book-maker, that enjoys the process of new sets of work that come from developing rolls of film, having coffee with a friend, people watching in the park, listening to a new song, etc. Sharing stories from the everyday mundane to familial to my internal struggles. Believing everything can be deemed beautiful and important if we give it a chance. With each new revision, I try to give new context by shifting space, form, and placement.
