Opening Act is a body of work that represents select photographs from the initial years of my photography. As I tried to navigate how I wanted to use the camera to express myself and communicate through a visual medium I experimented with many of my interests: friends, cycling, street photography and my favorite city, San Francisco. Opening Act encompasses a period of growth and maturity in my photography.
