Grounded in a sense of wonder and awe, Wide Eyed departs from a reactionary response to my surroundings. I approach this series of photographs with the spirit of the wanderer and emphasize egalitarianism with the images I select. Wide Eyed persists as the undercurrent of my entire photographic process, bridging the gaps between more pointed investigations. As a result, this project avoids specificity in content and conceptual motivations. Rather, it functions more analogously to an archive, a database, a repository for meditations, glimpses and passing thoughts about my relationship to anything I may encounter. Wide Eyed is intended to be a breathing body of images, a space to bounce and veer and double back while maintaining the sensation of being in a place of familiarity without specificity.
