Hyde Park, 2014

It started coming towards me and I wasn’t sure whether or not to run for my life

Hyde Park, 2014

I’m back! (For a lil while at least.) My boss gave me an Canon AE-1 Program we found while cleaning our inventory, so I took it for a test drive around Hyde Park. 

And two years after I started working at the darkroom, five years after I started shooting film, and goodness knows how many years since I started photography in the first place but the point is TODAY I finally taught myself how to develop black and white film.


We made an official music video! Tell your enemies, tell your friends. 

Track by Slurp’s Up, filmed and edited by me.

(Slurp’s Up music video coming to your face in the extremely near future! Get very excited~)

Continuing my videography streak, I’m mindbloggled by the amount of talented and hardworking artists on campus. I saw Will here playing the drums at an event and was captivated, and it turns out he was just about to release his debut album when I happened to bump into him and chat about it. It is poetic, honest, and amazing, and I liked it so much I asked him if he wanted any camera work done. We ended up filming nine live cuts from the album.

Here is one of my favorites, titled “Frosted Flakes.”

"Chicago, you are a tangle of voices, let me get lost in you and help me find myself."

Poetry in Motion is a collaboration between the slam poetry and hip-hop dance teams at UChicago and the result is everything I have ever wanted so I filmed it. This is Jessica Covil and John Lim performing “Hometown.”

I’ve always been a New Yorker at heart, but I’ve spent more time in Chicago lately than at home. Every time I watch this piece, I find myself getting closer to realizing what it is about each city that I can’t leave behind. This is probably my favorite piece from Poetry in Motion, because it resonates with me so personally (and holy crap Jessica and John are amazing).

"God breaks things made of light so I have learned to write poems at night."

This is Shaan Heng-Devan and Cameron Okeke performing “CITR//Cheers.”
