Neighbor II, 2018

In the Fall of 2017, I moved away from my hometown to Denton, Texas. Placed in a new environment, I started a project to better understand the area around my new home. With the uneasy feelings that comes with moving to a new location, my camera was a way for me to cope with my sudden change of setting. While making the work exclusively in the Northridge neighborhood of Denton, I repeatedly found myself drawn to the streets of Amherst & Malone.            

Amherst & Malone is an impression of modern suburbia and the notion of the American dream. Through the juxtaposition of portraits of neighborhood residents and the surrounding environment, a closer look at suburban life is unveiled. By objectively documenting these photographs, the interpretation of the images is left open to the viewer.
