Papa tin types

  • Through the years, many kinds of snapshots have found their way into my extensive collection.

    I am compelled by our common humanity that can be found in discarded photos from the past ; pride, devotion, weariness, loss, resilience, and more. I collect, curate and design with intention for diversity and belonging because respect and inclusion are important to me.
