wedding



this summer i was lucky enough to be trusted to document a wedding.  i love weddings, the fact that two people love each other enough to want to be together for their whole life is a beautiful thing.
thank you for trusting me for your big day.

memory


i am currently working on my final project for school.  in february i will graduate and be off on my own.  

i had the pleasure of going to hrísey, a tiny island in the north of the country where i shot the film for my project.  all of june i was free to roam around, documenting the faded remains of my childhood memories of this beautiful place.  this is one of my test shots taken during one of my nightly walks.  

every night, the clouds would flirt with the light, protect the mountains, and explore the valley.  the birds sang to each other, the waves splashed quietly on the rocks, and i listened as the oh so soft sea breeze caressed my neck.  beautiful hrísey, how i miss you.

a perfect creature


she appeared to me.
a perfect creature from the sea.
she brought hope.
she set me free.

roots


video

pretty little project. roots. 

text:
summer fades into autumn, 
the wind rages all around.
she shivers and tries with all her might to hold on to her leaves, 
the wind is too strong.
her leaves are ripped off and stripped away,
she tries swaying with the wind
clinging to the hope that submission is the key to keeping herself intact.
the hours stretch into days, the days into weeks,
 it gets harder and harder to hold on.
her last leaf is torn away and along with it the sense of protection,
of warmth, 
of belonging.
she stands alone and naked,
shivering in the wind and the cold.
her nakedness is mirrored all around,
 in the trees standing silent and unmoving.
following their lead, she retreats deep into her roots
determined to remember 
the warm days of summer,
waiting for the promise of spring,
knowing that winter is a season that will not last forever.
