These images are from a body of work I made in Sicily this past fall and later made into a book entitled Isola Immagini. This series of photographs documents the relationship between the diversity found in the landscape and the people of Sicily.
I started taking photos early in high school when I first enrolled in a darkroom photography course. That initial class made me very attracted to the process of using film for photography and I have been using film ever since.
At the moment I am working on a series of still lives shot in my studio in New York. In these I am incorporating natural objects with handmade ceramic vessels I’ve created over the past year.
