WANDERLUST MEETS STREET ART

I suffer from wanderlust and a natural curiosity for anything that’s well, not boring. The more I travel, the harder it is for me to stand still. My love of travel, photography and art fuel my inspiration and my need to discover the world around me. I love that my camera (and in many cases, my iPhone!) draws people to me and creates the pathway to conversation. When I choose a destination, the country/city has to appeal to me on different levels: the culture, the people, the architecture and the food are all key elements. The art is usually secondary to all of that. Doing street art photography has allowed me to visit cities I may not have thought about visiting before, and it’s allowed me to connect with people from around the globe. What’s not to like about that?

D*FACE

Over-the-Rhine is a neighborhood that’s rapidly undergoing gentrification. A few years ago, it was considered to be one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the U.S. You can still see remnants of this as you walk through the neighborhood: boarded-up buildings, construction zones, homeless people. A local told me that when he first moved to Cincinnati, the OTR neighborhood was the only one he could afford to live in – but not so, now.

NOMEN

These are a few gentlemen that I met while exploring a low-income neighborhood in Lisbon. They didn’t speak English, and I didn’t speak Portuguese, yet we were able to understand each other and agree that this wall by Nomen, is lovely. The best way to capture the moment was to shoot these locals in front of their wall!

ETAM

I didn’t know what to expect when I decided to go to Richmond. Matt, a fellow Instagrammer, told me to check out the art scene there – that’s where he and I met for the first time. The folks in Richmond are amazing: friendly, welcoming, and ready to shoot the shit about anything and everything. This mural by Etam is my favorite wall EVER. I took 62 shots of this. As you can imagine, this gave me plenty of time to talk to locals about art and life!
