taken

Photographs I took (or stole) as I rode my motorcycle through the Americas from 2013-2016. They are catalogued moments burning holes in my brain, still living in my heart, influencing new bodies of work, from embroideries and paintings to written works.

Presented here are small selections. The first Saturday of every month I will upload a new set. Check back and take a look..
