My piece has to do with Josh Greenfield. He's my friend from a training school we both attended. After he got out of the Marine Corps he decided to become an actor. As you know it is a very sought after career in LA. He moved his apartment into storage in LA but found that he had to sell some of his prized possessions from the storage just to make rent. He lived in a assisted living apartment in downtown but the standard of living in LA is very high. He worked at a library and took small parts as an extra on set. This photo is a portrait of him in his storage unit. This photo was taken with 4x5 film in a panoramic view.

COPING THROUGH ART
My work is about the transitions military members face when they're no longer active duty. I find that the process of coming out of the military is almost a re-boot of your identity. My work aims to explore those places in a documentary portrait way.
