These Missed Connections can be funny, sad, poignant, and beautiful all at the same time, but one thing they are never is dull.

In this series, I take a look at these oddly hopeful pursuits. Going to the scene of the missed connection and providing a glimpse into the moment that love at first sight was realized, and just as quickly lost. These voyeuristic images, paired with the original listing, provide context and objectivity to the fleeting romanticism experienced by the author.

Not So Far From Here is an ongoing series of photographs that explores the Western American landscape and the wonders and curiosities that lay beyond the focused eyes of this twenty-first century society. We place so much emphasis on our destination, and everyone, myself included, is seemingly always on such a tight schedule that enjoying the proverbial journey has become a thing of the past. With this project I have set out to embrace that journey, destination be damned.
