Documentary project for Ground Glass Workshop Brooklyn

Last summer I flew to NY for a workshop with Spencer Lum of Ground Glass, a wedding photographer whose business blog stands out for long form, contemplative writing without even a hint of a “silver bullet” for solving all small business problems. I am still digesting much of what I experienced over the course of a week. On an objective level, my attention to composition and storytelling, particularly bringing a more intimate eye to my work, has been something I have noticed in the months since the workshop. But on a subjective level, I am still working out some of the unexpected feelings I had combining intimate storytelling and documentary photography.

But, to get to the photos, this is my final collection from the workshop. I call it “I don’t feel like I am here”. At the time, I was dealing with a lot of feelings of being out of place, and the loss of my father. My subject (the warm and lovely Karina!) is originally from Latvia, and we talked a lot about being out of place in many places.
