Man with Dog

My current work explores my experience bridging the gap between adolescence and adulthood. While exploring this, I touch on different aspects of my personal life and my relationships with those around me. I seek to capture the seeming contradictions between youth: the energy and mystery of new, ephemeral relationships, coupled with the lethargy of adolescence and the devotion we all, young and old alike, desire. This is part of a series taken on a backpacking trip through Ireland, the Netherlands, Italy, and Germany. I capture the relationship between the friends I traveled with as well as the strong but fleeting bonds among the people I met along the way.
