I do street photography using a 1970s film camera. When I see a scene that I feel tells a story or expresses emotion without words I try to capture it quickly, usually with just one shot. This group of girls was celebrating a quinceanera in a Dallas park. They were so excited and in the moment so I followed them until I got the shot.
I was driving down a street in Dallas and saw this picture. I stopped and took it. I think it tells a story about all the faces that are a part of Dallas.
I like to visit different neighborhoods to shoot people in their element. Through a storefront window I noticed this gentleman very intently and skillfully practicing the ancient art of cigar making. I thought it was a beautiful image, almost like a painting, and he allowed me a few shots.
There is a beautiful dressmaking shop in Dallas that I visit because of its visual appeal. Here I was hoping to capture the intimacy of client and dressmaker working together.
I spend a lot of time on Main Street in Dallas. The businesses are diverse, from high end stores to apartments and local bodegas. Along with this comes a diversity of people and this double exposure was a way for me to show that mix.
I was in a restaurant in Marfa, Texas and this woman sat down with her companion for dinner. I thought her face was incredible so when the time was right I shot this one picture, capturing her alone in her thoughts.
The Contemporary Art Museum in Cincinnati has a beautiful window that looks out to the city. I thought this nicely framed an image of a city intersection as the people move through it.
