I was honored to be invited by the the International Center for Photography (ICP) to kick off the first month of their Talk in Images series. The series explores the power of photography as a universal language, something I very much relate to as a visual storyteller.
The first theme for Talk in Images is food. These images represent the solitary meals I have while on the road for work, away from home. Sharing food with friends and family is an important and beautiful moment of communion and togetherness. When I’m out shooting or on the road, I sometimes find myself having to eat alone. Left to my own devices I try to find beauty in a different way, capturing hauntingly quiet southern towns and restaurants which are missing that feeling of communion I may get at home or with the fellowship of others.
