"The way you can connect with a person you are photographing in a unique way... the process of shooting film and waiting days until you see it's reward. It's so personal and special."
"My first photograph was of my biggest role model. She was my guide to the outside world - away from my suffocating small town. She was my favorite aunt. We spent one rainy Saturday in Seattle, using a North facing window in her bedroom as our light source. We took polaroid after polaroid of each other. I was shy but she was patient. From then on I wanted to take photos."
"Ever since that rainy day in Seattle, I've wanted to document and connect with the world."
