During my solitary trip to New York at age seventeen I discovered photography to be something very accessible. For me to hold a camera and gaze and search for ‘pretty’ things was something that came as natural as eating. I applied for the okayplayer photographers month which is (or used to be) an annual event on the platform/website that represented all my favorite musical artists. Through waybackmachine I was able to make a screenshot of my feature on okayplayer. The funny part of it all is, is that non of these images above are images I shot. Also I wasn’t very aware of archiving back then, believing that everything online would live forever. I have no idea where the images of this particular New York trip are digitally. As a seventeen year old this was a nice way to get a sense of encouragement during the dark days of high school.
