End of Summer Studio Update!

End of Summer Studio Update!

I finally carved out the time to put together this email newsletter which highlights the best and most exciting things I have going on this year. Things are going to be VERY busy starting next month so I thought I'd keep this update manageable by doing it now. I will reach out again in October with an update from my exhibition in France and I will also be live updating during my trip to India in November. Stay tuned and thanks for following along with me on this incredible journey.

Removed series brought me all the way to China for Lianzhou Foto Festival

Removed series brought me all the way to China for Lianzhou Foto Festival

I have to thank curator Francois Cheval for being not just an irreplaceable figure in the world of historical and contemporary photography but for also being so warm and welcoming and supportive of my work. He found Removed like so many others online and immediately reached out to me with an invitation to exhibit the series in Lianzhou, China. Francois is the kind of photography lover who oozes with passion and excitement over images.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to China for the exhibition and festival and to spend time with Francois and his team which turned out to be a trip of a lifetime. I spent late nights singing at the KTV and making new friends, all of which were gathering to celebrate the incredible Lianzhou Foto Festival.
