"The dust and the grainy look on film developments are like the crackling sound of vinyl records. The mood is warm and soothing to the soul. I embrace imperfections!" - #filmisnotdead
The Zen of Analog Photography
Art provides a path for me to be free, create and to find internal peace. Art is therapeutic. I believe anything worth having usually does not come easy. A process is necessary. For instance, becoming a musician takes time. Learning to play an instrument is a creative process. I want those same experiences with my photography. I don't want 'instant satisfaction'. With photography, I am capturing a moment in time. Time needs time, so I feel what I record visually shouldn't have immediate results from a digital camera. I personally prefer to approach the art of photography with a more traditional method with analog equipment. I feel a strong sentimental connection to my film developments. Therefore, I am now seriously considering shooting film photography 100% simply because I am dedicated to the process of manually creating visual art.

I am a street photographer using film and digital formats. I enjoy listening to good music, traveling, quiet time & peace.
