Daily Photo Journal Project—April Highlights

I am a journaler. I started penning my life as a kid. This has always been the basis of my work. A space where stories are born. 

I love this quote by Joan Didion, “I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I see, and what it means. What I want and what I fear.” 

This, to me, speaks to both writing and photography. I learn from what has been written and photographed about what I am thinking at that moment. The real magic happens when the words or images evoke surprise afterwards. But, mostly, my journals are a place to return that feels like home. A reflection of home, all the memories, time, and fictions that happen over the years. A place to dream.

With a desire to create a new body of photographs, I started a new photo journal project in April 2020 as a way to mark time, ideas, thoughts, emotions. It has become the new routine. Small noteworthy moments photographed and taped to journal pages offer comfort during these endless days. 

I thought I would share highlights from April’s photo journal.

Do you keep a journal documenting your life? If so, what kind? Send me an email, I’d love to know…
