A Salty Salute
1992 - 1997

About the Book
I started making these photographs as a student at the University of South Carolina in 1992. After graduating, I continued photographing my friends, experimenting with various types of film and cameras. Around 1994, I began compiling the photographs with the idea of making an album. The project continued to evolve until I moved away in 1998, ultimately becoming two albums containing over 80 prints.
Revisiting these images over the years has always brought me joy. With that in mind, I decided to make this book, hoping others may enjoy seeing these photographs as well. I edited the two albums down to these 40 photographs. They are presented in loose chronological order, but are sequenced slightly differently than the original albums.
Many thanks to my friends who tolerated me and my cameras.
