Well, here we are. My year-long residency for The Photographic Journal comes to a close.
This role has been an inspiring challenge for me, and a motivator of sorts during a profoundly unusual year. I wanted to wrap up my residency with a care-free sunset shoot featuring a few of my friends from all-female skateboarding community, GrlSwirl. These women exemplify strength and togetherness. I’m forever inspired by them.
But they also reminded me how important it is to keep moving and keep laughing. We’re all in this together, after all. Be kind to one another and enjoy the holidays. There’s a new day just beyond the horizon.
