Artist Statement
We are most authentic, our most beautiful selves when we are open and vulnerable. This photo series explores these aspects of the human condition – our inner struggle with loneliness, surrender, anticipation, and the embracing our sense of playfulness, of intimacy and sexuality. The subjects in this series are not professional models, they are local artists, heath care professionals, athletes, teachers and students who live and work in San Francisco. What they have in common is an open spirit and a willingness to explore honest moments together that highlight the beautifully complex and vulnerable side of our shared humanity.

About the Artist
