Story of the Zine Project
This "pet project", if you will, really came out of the pandemic. As I began to endlessly walk my neighborhood with my dog I photographed. Feeling a little lost and in need of direction I gave my self a few set of rules to follow and found subjects that I started looking for. Inspired by the work of the Hilla and Bernd Becher I attempted a straight forward, consistent, documentary approach. My dream is to compile a full book worth of images. While that undertaking seems so large, I started making zines as an accessible way to reach my goal.
