Very excited to announce that I am having my first solo photography show ever Thursday June 6! Presenting, “Southwestward”, a collection of landscapes from across the American South. At Twig of Laguna, in Laguna Beach CA. 6PM-9:30PM.
I never expected my first photo show be a landscape show, since I specialize in portraiture. However, this is a project I’ve wanted to complete since it’s inception last August, when I went on my month long road trip across country. I’ve been carrying this project around in my brain for some time now & I need to give birth to it.
I did my trip on a super tight budget-my best friend Irene & I slept in my car, hostels, & camped our way from Southern California to New York & back. It was arguably the best month of my life, & I feel very lucky to have been able to have that experience. Traveling at all is a luxury that a lot of people don’t get to experience in their lifetime, so I wanted to make sure I gave back a bit as some kind of cosmic ‘thank you universe’. I will be selling prints at this show, & 100% of the proceeds will got to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center, who are experiencing an overwhelming amount of Sea Lions in need of medical attention this year.
My dear friend Francisco Ruano will be playing live music & breaking your heart crooning the most beautiful Spanish love songs you’ve ever heard.
Photography. Live Music. Wildlife Preservation. Boom.
Hope to see you there!
