Favorite Shots of 2016

At the end of the year, for the past few years, I’ve chosen a selection of photos that I’ve taken over the course of the year to try and understand what just happened.

The 12 or so images I choose each year represent a combination of feelings about what’s personal for me mixed with what’s going on in the world.

“Event Meets Street Meets Documentary” – 14 Shots

I began getting paid (a little) for photo work as an event photographer and photojournalist about a decade ago. With the advent of the iPhone, I took to the streets, joining legions of fledgling street photographers redefining a long unsung art. For several years I’ve been trying to bring these two styles — using both digital and mobile photography — together into one voice. This year I added some film to the mix. What I got is “event meets street meets documentary”. And while that did not help me not make sense of the turbulence by any means, I’ve come to the understanding that you must find your balance in its midst.
