Observations from the Field

Observations from the Field explores the inherent value of cultural, monetary, and psychological meanings embedded in people, places, and things, slightly alluding to the Southern California landscape. Through the deadpan frame, the project consists of still lifes, studio portraiture, and street photography to combine together for a loose narrative about the everyday experience.
