"IN early 2016, upon realizing I had no goals or even dreams, I
bought a three-month round trip ticket to Paris, France. Why? What
does Paris have that San Francisco doesn’t? No idea. I do remember
wanting to run away from
all of my unhealthy habits of comfort here at home. Seeing
as I was too stuck in my ways to change in my usual habitat,
I thought abandoning home, possessions, and source of income could
give me the environment I needed to metamorphose into my “ideal” self.

Certain habits did change; At home I would go to sleep by 10pm
instead of joining friends for adventures in the city at night. I
would also escape the world by holing myself up in the darkroom nearly
all waking hours. On the road I had neither keys to a bed or a
darkroom to create in which forced me to the streets, with people,
being social. It created in me a larger sense of community and
belonging than I was accustomed to. When the opportunity for solitude
and introspection while traveling arose I took it, gladly, which lead
me to accept I’m as much me on the Mediterranean Sea as I am on the 14
Mission.

Here are photographs in chronological order from this trip during
which I learned some of the many different ways people can continue
on, day-by-day, here on Earth. I also learned that my way isn’t wrong,
just my rendition."
