Milano Photo Week
Photography Contemporary Cities
Spazio Tadini Home Museum, Milan, Italy
June 8 - July 8, 2018
Photography ignites an eagerness to explore different cities and to capture the intricacies within it. While some may find a passion for photography through travel, I found a passion for travel through photography. Travel has humbled me and expanded my perception of my place in the world. My work behind the lens catapulted me into a lifestyle of constant travel, taking me on visual adventures within my own hometown, Los Angeles and to destinations like Cuba.
As a photographer, the most gratifying experience that it gives you freedom to go anywhere in the world with a purpose. It gave me a reason to travel not just to visit places but to explore them and find what makes a place so beautiful in its own way - whether it's through their shape, color and/or form.
Lost in Santa Monica and Fireproof Taxi shows an architectural contrast between two contemporary cities and within each photograph, it shows the calm, undisturbed vs a tumultuous scene.
