i believe photographs are depreciating with every moment.let's defy it with some weird images.






self portrait circa 2018 from our home on queen anne hill, seattle.




we don't stop to ponder one image

at a time

instead, we hungrily consume fifty

in a minute

most of us are seeking to live slower more thoughtful lives

well i say we ought to bring these intentions into our screen spaces as well, these spaces we occupy so often.


slow down the current of social media garbage + noise you cannot but slow down your individual intake you can





double exposure photograph* of my friend and often beautifully obliging model, lareesa. this was at rattlesnake park in 2019 i believe. the luminous beauty of it all is she was pregnant! and i photographed her and her sweet one near similarly beautiful water not long ago <3






this image is kind of the logo i think for my white guilt podcast episode. i have only made a sneak peek episode, and part one of white guilt. i recorded part two with my friend some time ago but have struggling to create space to put it together. i've been in deep reflecting mode. so i feel this is preventing me from putting any words out there that are too rash - i want to create something that speaks beyond my own wisdom. so that, perhaps, my spirit of anti-racism, may ignite another's pursuit of their own anti-racist spirit. it's very beautiful - truly i believe i love my soul now far more as i work to rid myself of lies, and shed, slowly and methodically, the white fragility which holds me from holding myself accountable.





(speaking in yoda because we're watching star wars right now lol.





damn han solo was sexist. keeps calling princess leia "sister" and saying things like "i'm not taking any more advice from a woman!"

goodness! we all internalized so much garbage.)



take care to breath the air of truth, too.

read a book - not your social media feed.



this photograph is a long time favorite. my sister and i put together a styled shoot in minneapolis when we were living there. the theme was "love like the sea" and i wrote a poem to go along with it. we worked with incredible artist hanna knutson to create two paintings in line with this vision of love like the sea. i was so in love with the gracefully playful movement that we were able to capture during this shoot - whimsical comes to mind.
