Nob Hill Bundle (rare)

  • Through the years, many kinds of snapshots have found their way into my extensive collection.
    I am compelled by themes of our common humanity that can be found in discarded photos from the past; pride, devotion, weariness, loss, resilience, love and more. I am mindful that not everyone was and is visible through photography. With that in mind, respect, equity and belonging are at the center of my collections, curating and creations.
