Encounters (2010-current) This is an ongoing photographic project where I purport to document various “encounters” with people in the region of Central Pennsylvania. I’m interested in the landscape, the culture, and the people that I’ve met that represent a more modern ideology than the previous generation that grew up there. Although this project is still developing it stemmed from my desire to document a particular group of friends. My curiosity about this group began because although they are from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds and have distinct religious beliefs, there is a undeniable bond of friendship and resepect that is unique to the history of the area.
