musing on this year; my vision has grown ten fold. i can’t wait to see where i go next year.
If you and I went to Big Sur, then in the following month I asked you to recall that experience, your visual recollection wouldn’t be a single wide angle panorama of the beach. You’d assemble a narrative in your head, a patchwork of what you remember, on macro and micro levels. A collection of squawking, brilliant white birds tracing their way across the clouds; the cold frothy water hitting your feet; the sun wrapping around your skin; the people you were with, and how you reminisce on them in this moment. It’s not just looking out at a beach. It’s about how we process experiences.
I really enjoy creating that experience, but in the present. That is exactly what I shoot. I’m asking myself, “What is making this experience what it is? What am I noticing?”. From the light hitting the sand to the largest clouds above. Pinpointing those tiny details that make a feeling a feeling." — Jake Stangel
thanks for the mention Lana, my mind-blowing game is pretty modest tbh :)
your newest photographs of the burn-off/fire definitely fit that description! your work as a whole deserves it, i can really get lost in the tones of it all - I can’t put my finger on it exactly but when I see a photo of yours turn up I know it’s yours immediately. I’m very glad to have been exposed to it.

//sorry if i forgot you i just scrolled down my “likes” list for forever//
there are so many mind-blowing artists on this website & outside of it creating continuous brilliant work it makes me question my relevance and contribution to the world
