In the past year I have done extensive work as a documentary photographer, taking cues from Gilded Age and Depression-era photographers to focus on American poverty and gentrification.  I'm interested in telling a story, first and foremost, and my primary goal is to create images that inspire people to act. Gordon Parks, Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, Dorothea Lange and their contemporaries are my inspiration.

To be fully available and mentally present for these events requires a flexible schedule and working equipment. I am blessed to have both now, but that also means my income is flexible. I would like to continue this work and possibly even do some traveling up and down the East Coast to further document the state of class in the United States. I also intend to write essays to accompany my photography and hope this leads to gallery shows and articles in magazines. 
If you're at all able to financially contribute to my work, this is what it will go towards:

1) Equipment purchases/upkeep. I would like to get a 28mm lens next. I have a Canon 7D, and a 2011 Macbook. I currently shoot my street work on an iPhone 6, but the phone subscription has been turned off because it was too expensive. I use wifi for communicating with everyone. I subscribe to Adobe Creative Suite to do my work.

2) Travel expenses. I travel all over the city and my big splurge every week is an unlimited $32 Metrocard. I rely on the Metrocard to get to nannying jobs, club gigs, and on site location shoots.

3) Printing costs. I'm starting to print my work to sell, and am setting aside a chunk every month for that. I'd like to move toward that as a financial source, but I need to make the prints first. I print with Adorama in NYC. (They're great. Highly recommended.) 

4) Website. About $100 a year. 


Thank you very much.
