Welcome to my mess of a blog
I’m a photographer in the Midwest. I’ve been casually doing photography since 2015, but I’ve only really started taking it seriously as of 2017.
The reason I’ve started being serious is because I really struggle with memory. I was a boxer and over time I accumulated ten concussions. Because of this my brain had already gone through some serious abuse. In January of 2017 I got a minor concussion on a Monday, but not knowing I had one I continued to train on Wednesday and received a severe concussion on top of the first one.
My life is back to normal, but I really struggle with memory. Because I can’t really keep memories in my head, I put my memory into the pictures I take.
I have a few goals as a photographer
- To make enough money so that I can have a comfortable life. (my version of comfortable probably differs from the standard view)
- To capture pieces of history. I hope that someday people will look back on the pictures that I take and view them as valuable parts of human history.
- To capture my life. In fifty or sixty years from now I want to be able to look back at all the places I’ve been and things I’ve done with great, clear memories.
I hope you all enjoy my memories as much as I do.
