I started out using photography to tell other people’s stories because I did not know how to tell my own. I started to find my voice through an independent research project in university, where I talked about how the toys that children play with can affect their self esteem and body image and can continue on as adults. I started to find my voice and how I wanted to present my art through this project.
Many artists have a big moment where their work has been successful, but I have had a lot of small moments that mean a lot more to me. I not only try to see myself through my photography, but I also try to see my friends and show their experiences. My success comes from the little moments I experience and the conversations I get to have with people that choose to share their life experiences.
