Breath & Air is a collection of images featuring the people in my life and our surrounding environment. Inspired by their vulnerability in front of my lens, I'm drawn to the moments they appear most at peace with life and content in their skin. The moments are honest and fleeting, making their beauty all the more alluring. As the series of photographs grew, a commonality of peace and serenity between the subjects and the environments became apparent. Exhales and breaths liken to sweeping winds while focused gazes and streams of light command attention. Through observing my surroundings, I capture the pauses and gentle undulations of life around me; I witness simple truths and genuine emotion unfurl.
