Anonymous asks: Why do you say that you "wish you could shoot digitally"? Why can't you?

I dont understand how to make nice images with digital cameras. I dont rep being a film photographer though. These technical things matter less and less to me as time goes on. Photo-bro gear talk is usually very boring to me. It just happened that film is what I learned first and what I invested all of my money into so I am a little better at it. 

Anonymous asks: Are truck stops significant to you? Why are you photographing them? Are you going there alone because if so please be careful.

Well, my dad was a truck driver for a good chunk of his carnival career. I was in and out of truck stops my entire childhood and they provided my family with a lot of our basic needs. Food, laundry, safe place to sleep while traveling between fairs etc. Lots of cross over between this environment and the carnival one. I’m mostly gearing up for thesis carnival stuff and practicing environmental portraits and learning how to talk to people and make pictures at the same time. No I’m not going alone, thanks for the concern though.

Going to start sharing some images of truck stops and the people who frequent them.
