Out of Habit explores common moments of solitude through images composed with a mindset similar to meditation, and reliant on an intuitive creative process that seeks out patterns of form, light and color. From the periphery of vision, the observer is confronted with everyday subjects worthy enough to be photographed and contributes to a dialogue that turns an objective response into something more subjective and perplexing. I express a sentimentality for the mundane that becomes appealing before it quickly returns to its familiar status of being overlooked. In this moment of unfamiliarity, reveals a hesitance, yet a hopefulness to break out of a comfort zone that the observer is frequently attached to.
