  9. The Old Ramsey County Jail

    I had the opportunity, while sooting the Sites of Execution series to go on a private tour and photograph the closed old Ramsey County Jail in St. Paul, Minnesota. The building has been inactive for a decade, but was originally built in 1979. Images above include multiple cells, official control stations, common space, and a visitation area. It is connected to the courthouse basement which was where I was shooting the former execution site. Ironically, how to reuse this old jail is currently up for debate, keeping to the theme I love of the reuse of a space especially within correctional facilities. Eager to see what they come up with especially if it isn’t a condominium or mall!

  13. I am so pleased to announce that I have been selected as a Finalist for a Fine Art series in the New York Photo Awards. The work selected was the Sites of Execution series. I am filled with gratitude, and eager to meet the other finalists at the opening in January in Brooklyn. Thank you New York Photo Awards! One of the images from the series is featured below, that particular image is of the site of the final execution in Alaska, which is now the State Office Department. See the entire body of work here and the official announcement here. The round up of work is really something, do take the time to see the good company I am in by checking out the amazing work by the other finalists! 

     

  14. An Ode to Joan

    “The impulse to write things down is a peculiarly compulsive one, inexplicable to those who do not share it, useful only accidentally, only secondarily, in the way that any compulsion tries to justify itself. I suppose that it begins or does not begin in the cradle.” 
    ― Joan DidionSlouching Towards Bethlehem

    It was Joan Didion’s Birthday yesterday, she is one of my largest inspirations and consoles in this world, so to honor her I photographed my plethoras of notepads to demonstrate the artistic process of which I thrive, to scribble, write, and draw. Through the paper and pen, the written word, the not quite right, the yet to be figured, and the scratched out, I heavily delineate my focus. Thank you Joan Didion for The Year Of Magical Thinking, your plethoras of other published works, and your methodologies which only reinforced my practice in thinking about loss, living, harmony, and California.
