For two years now I have researched, planned & photographed locations all throughout Los Angeles, San Francisco & San Diego. When I started this photo series I had no idea what would become of it. It's evolved in so many ways. It was originally just about crime locations & then somehow it evolved into something so much more. I've taken out so many images to make this project so much stronger. Today was the last day of shooting before Part 1 of it goes to print. Right after I finished this beautiful image was above me. I just can't believe so much time has passed by. I have to finish part of this in order to graduate & have something physical to at least finally show people who are interested in my work. I have probably another 30-40 locations to add all throughout California. I'm so insanely grateful for the people who have helped me throughout this. People who have helped book hotels for me to stay in. Woken up at an insane hour to catch the sunrise shoots with me. Driven all over the state. I have some amazing friends.
This week part 1 officially goes into print. I'm so insanely excited to show people what I've been working on. My soul is in this.
