7 Shades of Yellow

7 Shades of Yellow is a documentation of my hometown, Amarillo, TX. No longer a resident of Amarillo, I have continuously returned to reevaluate the cultural and spiritual ideologies that were imposed upon me as a young child who was raised in the heart of the “Bible Belt.” Through this project, I study my native home from a now outsider’s perspective, making images that reflect my shift in personal views as I have evolved as a person. Using my 4×5 view camera, each image in this series serves as a visual representation of my detachment from the space while also incorporating subjects that trace back to my childhood.
