Before I departed the country, my journey began in Philly. I was an emotional wreck due to a surprising reaction from leaving Austin and a man that toyed with my heart. I styled and scouted for a photoshoot, saw vintage textiles from Africa, heard an Ex-Priest from Italy perform in a dark DIY basement show and shared cocktails, nachos and convo with my boo Ramona.
It was hard to be present in these moments as my mind was racing and was full of anxiety from leaving my home, my friends and someone I could finally picture a life with. That is why I turn to my camera, where I am solely focused in on this moment of creating a constant memory.
