In 2016, I established a partnership with Polaroid, utilizing their products where the roads led me, and submitting content for their blog.

I decided to frame my first series around the idea that these Polaroid snapshots should be dynamic expressions of personalities, rather than static archives of one emotion. I titled the first series, Mise en Abîme, a French term in filmmaking that refers to a "frame within a frame." Graciously slinging the Polaroid Snap, I stowed it with me across the map to capture some of my favorite faces in 2016.
