The Universe says, "Okay!" and I say, "Thank you!"
Sun bubbles and the young person's air conditioning, meteor showers and navels and beaches, Andy Warhol pretends not to care, feeling pretty as Marilyn Monroe, shopping early with friends- finding too short dresses and lacy shorts, sleeping forever in your king sized bed, and enjoying pumpkin pancakes and free croissants.

these would make everything right in my world.

 Unfortunately, I don't have $800 for them.

what do clothes mean?

I've always spent way too much time deciding what to wear in the mornings. I'm usually late because I have to rake through my options. I begin to count down as I stare at the contents of my closet, 10... maybe the black vest...9...then I can wear my nikes, and skate...8...oh no! my black pants are greener than my vest...7...

Why do I bother? To be honest, I know I won't feel as good if I'm not wearing an outfit suited to the day's feelings. I know that if someone stares at me a bit too long, that I'll try and will them to understand why I chose this outfit. Everyone wants to say something, present their personality, define themselves in this overpopulated world. And do we understand them? It's hard to know, but I thought I'd start trying with this project.

I photographed friends in a neutral setting, then in their clothes of choice, and then I photographed just their clothing. They're all pieces of the great portrait puzzle.

in the studio days...

...I had more freedom in shoots, but these days location is an issue.

I realize this is the first time I've posted my work, but there is more to come!
