In 2014, I moved to the rural outskirts of Paw Paw, West Virginia, a town with a population of a little over 500. I moved to a cabin with no running water, and found myself, in a Thoureauian sense, learning how to live more deliberately. I have documented my life here, photographing the people who are present in my life, the land, and life and decay as I find it, using an 8x10 camera. The 8x10 camera is deliberate and slow moving, a representational dance that directly reflects my life.
