i started the year taking a little break from photography. i spent so much of 2020 & 2021 making photos as a product, delivering for an audience and shooting on tight schedules, i felt like making photos lost some of its magic. when i started shooting again it was more slow and careful, fewer portraits - i took my camera around the city like I did when I first started shooting like 15 years ago and sort of rediscovered what i liked about it. In October i went to Portland and got a new camera. The new kit changed my eye, and it was so refreshing to see a shift in the photos i made, the first real evolution and challenge to my photos in a long time. These might not be the best photos i took but they are my favourite, and really, whats the difference?
