Making a photo is a game where I decide the rules: what it needs to look like, do, what to include or exclude from a scene. Life was in staycation limbo but I had the compulsion to play. 

 

I began "Playing Around" as an isolation project, a zine booklet that leapt from a specific 'suburban round' series, and expanded on that 9-image grid by filling in other photos mostly from the past few years (2018-mid2020) with some outliers.

My own odd travelogue & an intro to our AU coastal 'hood for 'hodophiles with fernweh'.
