let me tell you everything from 3000 miles away

What if a girl met a boy online and they talked and talked and talked in a series of messages and photos and videos but never on the telephone or face to face?

What if a girl did this over and over again with a few boys over a few years, searching for herself in someone else, in a series of misconnections, and connections, oft times shallow, but at times seemingly, beautifully deep? What is real and what is artifice – between two people who “feel” they “know” each other intensely – for awhile? When is the exact moment the lines blur and fantasy and reality become too entangled? Where do you escape the escape when it grows too real, and therefore, too untenable?

What if a girl made a little “story” about a dead girl who rhetorically tweets a boy 3000 miles away from the tomb, and he doesn’t even know she is gone? 


This is from a series I worked on and wrote two years ago (2014)

    I like your images where are they shot? are you using an app or playing in photoshop to get the textures….I know those are your secrets but location would make me have wunderlust

    1. Some of my photos are portra fine art film or ilford or velvia film slides or Kodak or Fuji, etc – some are digital and therefore I use tone changing photoshop filters, and some are just iPhone shots and using usually Instagram filters!
