The second installment of my ongoing visual diary. All works in the book were taken between January 2016 & December 2017 and presented in chronological order. 


In Rooms Volume 2 (2016-2017) takes readers on an intimate and erotic psychological journey , investigating fear, desire, death, mental health, sexuality, love, gender and identity. The story is deeply personal, created through the intense confrontation of my inner dialogue, shadow self, and minds of my subjects. While personal, it was my intention to tap into the collective unconscious in the hopes that the story is not my own, but each of ours. Through an observation of this pain, struggle, beauty & resolution may we liberate our minds, find peace within ourselves and in the most simplest of pleasures, feel something, a sense of stimulation or joy in order to carry forward.


In chronological order, accompanied with hand-written text, experience photography in a realm between literature and film, as a medium to communicate a surreal diary-like narrative. In the last section, readers experience an unpublished diary self portrait series with hand-written entries, sketches and contact sheets. This photo book provides viewers with the opportunity to juxtapose the artist's work with the artist's mind as a psychological study into creation of art and the human experience.
