Life in a Polaroid | January - April 2019

As a documentary photographer, I capture the truth of culture, history and the lives of people. But turning the camera around and putting myself and my own life in front of the camera, capturing that truth, has always been a daunting process.

Life in a Polaroid, a project that consists of over 30 Polaroids, is a photographic project which enables me to dive into this thought process and question those anxieties. Contained within each Polaroid is either a personal mood, feeling, or single activity, representing a specific day.

On the reverse side of each, you will find a small note highlighting my own brief thoughts in both abstract and concrete fashions.
