Piece description from the artist
Having grown up in the suburbs as a kid, I'm drawn to capturing spaces where urban landscape coincides with nature. I hope that through my quiet observations of these places, my photographs evoke not only a sense of alienation and beauty, but more importantly, a harmony between the two.
