I find comfort in making and collecting photographs of my closest friends. I’ve been photographing them for a decade. The images of my friends remind me of our companionship, each individual is there letting me remember them and I see myself reflected in them as they stare back at the lens. During the ritual of making these photographs my friends relinquish, for a moment, control to me and my camera. They allow me to compose a representation of them. I photograph for the same reason people intentionally collect keepsakes. Each image individualizes many memories into the representation of a single person. This series is a mint-condition collection of my closest friends. Original replications and still in pristine packaging, view the people that make me who I am today.
