Happy New Year to you all. 2011 was a pretty big year for myself and Letter to Jane and 2012 is already getting off to a great start with even more in store. I’ve been hard at work on several new projects, including the next issue of Letter to Jane. But first off, I want to introduce you to my newest project American Friend. It will be the new home for my photography. Here’s the description from the site:
“American Friend is a continually evolving photo essay of everyday life. For years now I’ve kept a small 35mm camera by me to capture little moments here and there such as cooking dinner, hanging out with friends, taking a walk, reading a book on the couch, etc. Whenever I feel like I can accurately capture what it feels like to be in the moment I take a photo. So this site is dedicated to the quiet moments, the happy accidents, the last pictures on the roll, the times when you’re not on the spot, and the times when no one is looking but you.”
The site is inspired by my fascination with the films of Wim Wenders, and he always finds a way to illuminate every atmosphere he uses, no matter how seemingly mundane it might be. I hope you will check it out and let me know what you think, as the project will constantly be evolving over the year.
