CIty of Sunflowers

Los Angeles, 2017

Through photography, I try to create art that expresses something of myself and my connection with a wild place. While LA is hardly wild, as i wandered through the local mountains and stumbled upon patches of blooming sunflowers, I felt that same connection. Just me, my camera, and the intimate details of nature. During the times when I wasn't alone on the trail, I encountered friendly hikers who appreciated the beauty of the land that we share. I even overheard a conversation of one group about making sure not to trample the flowers and leaving no trace for others to deal with. Not sure where I'll end up by summertime, but this place will always be special.
