I’ve been working on a personal project for the past 2.5 months – a daily photo journal for the year 2016. It has truly had a profound impact on me, both personally and artistically. I am learning so much and connecting to my photography in ways I hadn’t before.

I’ve shared above my 4 favorite photographs from the project so far. If you’re interested to follow along, it’s here.


When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused.
[Rainer Maria Rilke]
