American Wet Dream

 I started this series off taking photos of my friends. I love that intimacy you can have with someone. No walls are put up no fronts just themselves. As a photographer I open myself up and bare-all to people I am shooting, as a result, I capture their natural vulnerable response. I try to connect with all my models I shoot with whether they be a stranger I met at a coffee shop and asked them to model for me or someone I’m in love with. I want people to see what is not seen behind closed doors.
I feel like every photo speaks for that person.
I ask about their lives, their passions, their fears, who they love, and I tell them about mine. I ask the questions that others fear asking. Sometimes it comes off intense or aggressive, but the outcome is always something honest and beautiful. My American wet dream is to break down the barriers of what is considered taboo, and to make something human and honest.
