untitled, nyc 2013
back when i was in college my introduction to photography was a b/w film class. personally, i didn’t think the course offered enough credits for how much work i had to put in the class. so much time was spent shooting and being in the darkroom. i would have never guess that 6 years down the road i would be returning to the same process. this time around it almost seems a bit more frustrating because i don’t have a professor to turn to and ask questions, but that’s why the internet is beautiful. with trial & error, research, and the help of friends i’m going to keep attempting to perfect my craft..
the next couple post will be images from underdeveloped film. i like some of the images so i decided to share anyway, they are photos that i took at the west indian day parade here in brooklyn
..was pretty fucking great. as some of you know, i was in chicago a couple weeks ago for my birthday and my nerdy fam had an event to celebrate the creatives of the chi. i had a photo booth set up for portraits and good vibes, you can view them all here.
if you know me, im not much of an holiday or bday person but i have to say this was definitely the best birthday week to date. chicago showed so much love, my book released and sold out on my birthday, kind of major was a success, and turning 27 felt very assuring. picking up a camera was the best decision of my life.
