“I began this project after returning home to my native Midwest after living away for nearly a decade. It was my first real project. Most of my pictures at the time were made at parties I was attending with my friends. There were lots of bonfires and beer. I was photographing everything around me and some of it was pretty interesting. It felt really good to be back home. In that time I was seeing what was interesting about the Midwest for the first time. I couldn’t have photographed it the same way if I had never left.”
