Say something about yourself
Originally from Michigan, I’ve been living in Bangkok for nearly 7 years now. A large percentage of my work is shot on film, simply because I like the tangibility of it. I’m drawn to absurdity and not afraid to put myself in uncomfortable situations. If you’re taking a selfie in public, there’s a chance I’m standing behind you right now.
What is this series?
I tend to shoot strangers and people on the street, often using a heavy flash. This is sort of a meditative break from that and more of a personal study of colors, minimalism, and simple still lifes. It’s an ongoing process.
How/When did you start this series?
Like most of the things I shoot, it comes naturally, or it doesn’t come at all. I purchased a half-frame camera a few months ago and started photographing more things that previously I might have considered to be “a waste of film.” Having double the amount of exposures gives me more room to experiment without feeling too guilty about the cost.
What message do you want to tell the audience?
In this case, I don’t.
Any news or updates? Exhibition, book, life?
I’m currently working on a few things.
Launching the third issue of my “Mao Mak Mag” series with an accompying exhibition on November, 11th at JAM Cafe.
I’m also wrapping up another series showcasing my photos under the Instagram hashtag #storedisplaced which consists of found photos in store demo phones. Currently in the process of creating a book with ‘Poop Press’. (Speedy Grandma)
Also a couple other things that are a bit hush hush for now. It’s going to be a busy year!
