Bear With Me
Bear with me is a reflection of a year spent making images and traveling together. It is a comparison of how two similar perspectives experience the same landscape. Image-making, for many artists, is a compulsive trait--something innate that demands you pause to interpret a moment before it passes. Bear with me is a combination of these pauses. The work is reflective not just of the person who stopped to make it, but also of the people who stand and wait patiently as it is made.
