"The Last Billboard"
A 36-foot-long billboard located at the corner of Highland and Baum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Every month, a different individual is invited to take over the billboard to broadcast personalized messages, which are spelt out using wooden letters that are changed by hand.
Gel transfers on bandaids
A conceptual archive of everyone that I photographed between 2008 and 2014.
After recognizing the duality of the bandaid - healing and hurting - I attempted to quantify my relationships with everyone who I have photographed, in order from the person who has helped me heal the most to the person who has hurt me the most. But, I found that in this arranging process that people who have done both landed somewhere in the middle, alongside people I felt more neutrally towards. The intensity of the heal and the hurt was also affected by the passage of time and the strength of the memories. There was no real way to create this order when everyone had, whether strongly or not at all, contributed to some level of my healing or of my hurt.
This stands as an archive of everyone who has found themselves in front of my camera, and as a recognition of the roles they have all played in the last six years of my life.

"I have a million things to talk to you about. A million things we have to talk about. All I want in this world is you. I want to see you and talk. I want the two of us to begin everything from the beginning."

It’s Monday night and I’m drunk and my professor told me she is jealous of the way I handle light in photography and that’s enough
"Love is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in things we do for each other every day."
