Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis

Midwestern

Midwestern will be a self-published, limited-run book, and also represents a body of images in an ongoing project. To me, the Midwest is an idea, a place, a condition, and more. The pictures have a relationship of context that forms a dialogue when viewed altogether.

The street photography that I do originates from a desire to connect with my environment in an extraordinarily personal way. This type of photography is very instinctive; I respond to what the surroundings provide, adding little. The picture-taking is focused, but is also very organic; this is the result of a hypersensitive connection between the camera, the mind, and the eye.

All of the images were photographed between 2008 and 2012, mostly in either St. Louis or Chicago, or at points in-between.
