off the grid

For a good part of March and April, I worked on a project with the Cultural Council documenting Off the Grid, a program which matches artists with downtown spaces. It was an amazing experience being present as these artists worked, and also feeling the wonderful energy of their spaces during Art Walk. Jacksonville has such a talented group of artists. Thank you, Amy Crane, for giving me the opportunity to see the good work they do up close. Here, in no particular order, are just a few of my favorites. If you'd like to see a larger collection, feel free to click on the slide show at the end of this post.

Rachel...still 17 for a few more days...


Audrey loves photography and has commissioned several different photographers to photograph her sons over the years. When she calls me, she's looking for a documentary collection of images about a certain experience of growing up. Several years ago, I photographed both boys when they had missing front teeth (you can see one of the images on my website--a black and white photograph of a boy laughing with his mom). Now the oldest boy is becoming a teenager, and she asked me to capture the crossroads. I love photographing this family--they have so much fun together.
