“The First Time” is a still life project that uses food and beverage as an entry point to explore subtle memories. I aim create a feeling of nostalgia and desire through intimate framing and placements of the subjects within. Sensory responses help to crystalize an intricate tango between our past and the unexplained emotional reactions that occur as we reminisce. Each image entices viewers to viscerally remember their experience with the subject and stirs up the desire to indulge again or for the first time.
Participate in the smell, taste and even sounds allowing yourself to relive your own memories and desires of what’s to come.
