New York, NY, USA
I'm not the best storyteller in person, but I can through photographs and creative writing. I am a documentary photographer with an obsession for nostalgia and the west. While studying book arts in graduate school, I created handmade books about my grandfather's life as a rodeo cowboy, love letters between the West and East, and living with and addressing mental health issues. My work has been collected by the rare books collections of the Topeka Public Library, Yale, George Washington University, and in juried exhibitions.
Born and raised in Colorado, I've always been attracted to all things wild and the feel of the earth in your hands and dirt in your fingers. This love for texture and the tangible led to my interest in artists books and the feeling of a printed photograph. I use creative writing, such as short stories and poems, to give my images context and to create an underlying sequence.
Currently, I'm based in New York where I explore all facets of photography but focus on documentary projects. My work is driven by a high level of empathy for all people and my desire to understand them, and I often address topics like rural life, religion, and underserved communities.

Nazareth Convent and Academy, or Motherhouse, sits on a hill and can be seen from many locations in Concordia. The building began construction in 1902. According to sister Ann, when she first arrived there were 80 sisters, now there around 30-40.
Meet Sister Ann Vincent Glatter, affectionately, Annie. She has been a nun at the Motherhouse for 69 years and has lived on and off campus. Here she returns from a visit to the cemetery. Every-time she catches the camera she laughs, smiles, and giggles.
