For 2018, I’d like to return to my first love: image making. I’m hoping to place my photography in conversation with my scholarship on mental health, sexuality, race, and geography. I’ve been out of the loop on what’s popular or interesting in the photography industry and have taken inspiration from Teju Cole’s “Best Photo Books of 2017” to sit in the stacks at Morris Library and create my own list of books to draw on from as I capture the months to come.
