Still Standing, Finding America

‘Still Standing, Finding America’ is a photographic series in progress that explores America through former 7Eleven buildings that have been refurbished into different entities. By focusing on the revolving occupants of these buildings that exist within the unchanged structures, this series reveals the ever-changing cultures of rural America trapped within its foundation.

Lover Letter

This is a love letter I created for my husband. Each drawing and photograpgh are seperate objects placed together inside a single pink envelope that reads 'For Jose.'

*Viewing the images and text in order is an important part of its narrative.
