For as long as I can remember, I have been captivated by leaves. Their venations, forms, and tonalities inspired a faithfulness to capture what I see as the beautiful and distinctive material of everyday life. My photography documents those simple yet profound truths I find in nature as they take shape before my eyes. I see the natural world as not merely the backdrop to life, but emblematic of life itself; a vital element at the core of our living world that exceeds our own existence. In my photographic odes to nature I explore the detailed, the painterly, and the spiritual, examining the tensions therein between sensitivity and strength. For me, photographing is a poetic burst of inner feelings, an attempt to create something that honors the connection between nature and self.
I am interested in all aspects of photography and curatorship. I hope to become an art director someday, and I feel this internship will give me valuable insight into a photographic institution. As a photographer I was so excited to stumble upon the PRC, an intimate haven in which to explore new ideas in photography as network of communication that enhances our world with beauty, dialog, and invention.
