I usually try not to stage photographs; I really appreciate the moments when people are unaware.  I try to take notice of light and the contrast between soft and hard, especially when shooting in black and white.  I shoot in film because I feel like nowadays we take photos so mindlessly and I think you learn to appreciate moments when there is a certain fragility to the method of how you choose to document them.  The photos are all of my friends, and I met all but one, Lea, in Chicago.
