"America" is a very important body of work for me. It was my first portfolio as photography major and my first real dive into film. All of the images are shot on illford HP5 film using a Nikon FM10.

 

     This is the first collection of images that really made the darkroom feel like home to me and made me believe I made the right choice switching my major to photography. The images are inspired by Robert Frank's "The Americans". 

 

     I wanted to show my perception of the piece of america I live in. Robert Frank was one of the first photographers I was really inspired by and with his passing away last year I feel even more compelled to post this collection.  

I hope you enjoy!
