I've always been a huge fan of photographers. As a young teenager, I had little respect for the art form until I was introduced to the haunting and seductive black and white images of Tulsa by Larry Clark. Soon after, I became ravenous for the amazing compositions, textures, and sultry graphite like colors found in works by Sally Mann, Robert Frank, and Walker Evans. Ever since, I've tried to learn how to capture such beauty in a single shot.
Lately, I've been focusing on the fading time capsule that is my grandparent's late home. I'm really excited to see what come of these, and I'm enjoying the juxtaposition of my drawings of the exterior of homes on white paper and the intimate and personal images of this very special place.
