These images are spread out over 4 cities, Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo and Hong Kong. In every one of these cities I feel an undying energy that seems to be woven into the daily customs and routines of the people living in it. Almost out of habit, I can’t help but harness a deep connection to the ritual spirit of each location. I soak up the hunger, rage and grime that exists in harmonious dysfunction with the passion and exhilaration of being young in an unpredictable place. As I move through the world, I let my impatience guide me and my work. This series is an extension of that restless appetite for more color, more thrills and more originality.
