I was having one of those weeks where I was feeling slightly lost, uninspired and discouraged with almost everything I was doing. I had been working late all week, had gotten very little sleep and fell into an almost robotic routine. I then realized, I hadn’t taken a single photograph in days. It’s so easy to get caught up in the fast paced mentality of New York City that I forgot to slow down, take in my surroundings and ‘click’. I decided to give myself a day off to remember who I am and what it is I love about being a photographer. Taking photographs for me is therapeutic, it’s the way I express what I feel inside without the use of words. A single picture can reach out to an individual in so many ways, whether it provokes nostalgia, hope or inspiration. It is my way of starting a conversation with the world. Photography is what I do, what I love and is a huge part of who I am.
