Base Ball Portraits (Part 1)

This summer I'm working on making graphite pencil portraits depicting members of the Chicago Salmon vintage base ball club. These portraits will eventually be featured on the team website, Each portrait is 6" x 6".

First Cyanotypes

This summer I'm trying out a few different photographic alternative processes. I started with a few cyanotypes of my cats, Furiosa and Merry. I contact-printed a digital negative, along with different plants for each cat. I'm enjoying the process, but still need to experiment with how to improve dynamic range.

Photographs: Harbor Country

Harbor Country is a series of photographs I plan to produce over the course of this summer and beyond.

For my entire life, my family has owned a small cottage in Union Pier, Michigan, and I spent every summer there through high school. Recently my wife and I have started to spend a lot of time in Union Pier, which has been phenomenal. However, I've noticed that a lot of places I frequented as a kid are now changed, abandoned, or completely gone. With Harbor Country, I seek to document the once familiar locations I associate with my childhood that have since been erased, no matter how seemingly insignificant. 


A former Arby's next to the highway exit we took to get to Union Pier. I don't think I ever actually ate there, but the sign would always greet us on the way to the cottage. 

Gold's Gym - Pool

As a teenager, I used to swim and read Nintendo Power magazines by this pool after working out. The gym used to be a railway roundhouse. 

To be continued.
