Kin // New York
Kin is an ongoing project started in a time of grief and life transition. Several years ago, I found the camera I had used in high school - the camera I fell in love with photography through - in a dusty closet at my mom’s house while home. Separately, but perhaps relatedly, I was feeling disillusioned with photography. I committed to using the camera, along with the old Tri-X film I found with it, to document the people and places most personal to me, my network of support and enduring love throughout rural New York and New England.
Kin is family both chosen and given. It represents the home that I am beyond fortunate to have, a true north in times of turbulence and instability. This project continues to serve as a way to connect with those I love and am lucky enough to have love me back.
