These photographs were made during a six week road trip through the US. We set off in Atlanta, crossed the southern states, and arrived in San Francisco by the end of May, 2013.

I could define my way of working as one of free expression and aimless wandering. Strolling around and identifying situations, compositions and details of the world surrounding us. Isolated in the frame of the photograph and cut off from the context I transform a banal reality into something enigmatic.

Small Talk is a photography collective comprised of seven women: Audra Osborne, Briana Cerezo, Jennifer Timmer Trail, Kelli Pennington, Kristina Hruska, Leslie Hickey, and Marico Fayre. As a group, we explore the nature of what it means to be a visual storyteller, pool resources, provide support and critique, and facilitate community events and discussions. We engage in the best kind of "small talk," that which binds us together both as a collective and within a larger community of women and minority artists, fostering stronger work and collaboration. Our first book, We're Always Touching by Underground Wires, was published in April 2018.
