I've been shooting film on and off for 20 years. My work is a bit of a compromise between landscape and street photography. I am more of an anthropologist or cultural geographer than a photographer per se. While one rarely sees a person in any of my photographs, traces of humanity are omnipresent. The fingerprints society leaves behind, provide evidence of its impact. I am especially interested in the roughly defined line between nature and civilization, as well as man’s attempts to harness its beauty. Naturally, this means I am also a bit of an archivist and historian. Southern California had seen more development in the last 100 years than anywhere else in America. The world of my childhood is rapidly eroding and my vision of San Diego is altered on a daily basis. As people bring different values, ideas, and visions to the region, they physically change the landscape as well. I enjoy documenting these changes and taking little snippets with me. I almost always shoot at eye level with a lens to closely mimic the human experience.
As a half-frame camera enthusiast, I founded www.halfframeclub.com back in 2016 to function as a community hub for half-frame film photography and we've been chugging along quite well since then.
