Americana (2023 - Present)

"Americana" is a photo series that delves into the intricate tapestry of American fashion influences across the globe. This collection is more than just showcasing American fashion; it is a deep exploration of how designers from diverse backgrounds weave elements of their unique heritage into their creations and subsequent presentations, while still encapsulating an unmistakable essence of Americana, sometimes by design, sometimes not.

The project is predominantly shot on instant film, an unconventional yet voyeuristic lens into the inner-workings of high profile fashion shows, distinct from the sharp, high megapixel, high frames-per-second digital camera coverage of today’s runway. It features runway moments, at times backstage moments, and almost always guests-of-shows shots from Fashion Week events.
