Thursday Feature: I’ll be putting up inspirational posts/images every Thursday. They’ll be loosely related to themes that are found in my work. Pop culture, celebrity, the sublime, photography vs. non-photography, documentary, etc. Anything goes. Renaissance painting to the home shopping network. ANYTHING. Enjoy!
