“But young adults of the nineties—who got to watch all this brave new individualism and sexual freedom deteriorate into the joyless and anomic self-indulgence of the Me Generation—today’s sub-40s have very different horrors, prominent among which are anomie and solipsism and a peculiarly American loneliness: the prospect of dying without even once having loved something more than yourself.”
-David Foster Wallace

These photographs document a journey through America. They are images of wonder and excitement, pain and loneliness, and my personal ideas of self. Additionally, they are portraits of America's land.

I often can't relate to America as it’s depicted through the media’s eyes. I find it difficult live up to cultural standards and societal expectations. I have trouble getting close to those closest to me. Yet, when I see America—the America of such diverse, beautiful, and nuanced terrain—I find that even if I can’t understand what America has become, what people around me have become, or what I've become, I can feel comfort in the landscapes.

This collection is vast. Not every photo is perfect. Immense meaning won't be found at every turn. Rather, the photos are a way for me to both explore and escape where I live and who I am.
