Photography – Detroit, MI

Growing up with an artistic mother, I constantly found myself surrounded by art and have always been extremely fond of the arts. I began with ballet, but due to an injury, relied on visual arts. While I love illustration and filmmaking, photography always stood out. I found myself visualizing the world as I would look through a camera, imagining how I could photograph people on the street. I was then inspired to take my photography to the streets. Shortly after, I fell in love with environmental portraiture. As an aspiring photographer, I idolize Bruce Weber. Specifically, I draw inspiration from Weber’s Detroit Has Been Good To Me series, a beautifully empathetic and honest collection of environmental photography in Detroit, Michigan. I am fascinated by street photography and the pure and raw personalities captured in these images.
