May was exciting – I finished my freshman year of college & moved home for the summer, and a week later, I flew out to Portland, Oregon for a week. Two of my best friends from school, Andrew and Gillian, live in Portland, and Gillian’s family was generous enough to house and feed me for [...]
This semester, I focused in my darkroom class mainly on shooting portraits (both others and myself).

It was so exciting to meet these people [...]
