Memories are a funny thing; you have tons of them, but they don't paint an accurate picture of your life. You collect your good and bad stand out moments, remember specific details about them and inevitably the other people involved remember it differently, with different details. This book is an exploration of how we create a collective memory with the people closest to us. It's a compilation of the narratives that my family and friends have written to go alongside my photographic representations of memories I've gathered from the past four years.
As a recent graduate of Ithaca College, I'm working on establishing myself as an artist outside of the school setting. I am passionate about photography, especially nature photography. Aside from photography, I enjoy painting, hiking and rowing. I spend a lot of time outdoors and it certainly carries over into my artwork.
