"I recently had the chance to visit Paris for three days in December. My main goal was to capture a city I have read and thought about for years through its literature, its art, and its music. Essentially, I wanted my photos to reflect the city in its inevitable, nostalgic movement of natives and visitors, full of charm and personality. What occurred from these objectives, in short, was me dancing through her streets for three days with a toy camera in my hand. Thanks for the dance Paris."

"The vast majority of my Hipstography is street photography that I do in Chicago and when traveling around the United States. Even though Chicago is a very visual town, my absolute favorite American city to shoot in is Los Angeles. Despite its creepiness factor of 10, I employ the shooting form the hip method in an attempt to capture pure reality with no camera awareness. Photographer Gregory Crewdson once said that he enjoys the 'intersection of beauty and sadness'. I couldn’t agree more."
