marfa, texas - yeah field trip!

you went to ….where?
for what? with who?

marfa texas is a small community 2 hours south east of el paso that frequently takes in visitors from all over the world who gather there, often for the arts. this year it was the site of yeah field trip, which is a 3 day conference/workshop, simply put, for photographers and other media creatives. each day had multiple time slots with different classes to choose from, taught by other creatives, on a variety of topics, from business and art direction to meditation and hands on activities like block printing and styled photoshoots. it was a magical land filled with inspiring, like minded, talented, forward thinking people, and we were all set up in this vulnerable, open, and honest space where we could discover and embraces ourselves. thats exactly what i did. i heard things in class that i only had previously thought about in my own head. my path and whwas reaffirmed. i experienced vulnerability and love. the truth that we’re all going to die united us.

i didnt focus on shooting, but of course i did so when i was compelled, but not usually when everyone else was. these photos are primarily of new friends or little moments.
