Take Me With You is a project which began as studio portraits of my queer friends and community in 2016 Sacramento, CA. It evolved into an installation of Victorian style cased images (shown at Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier, VT.) The third incarnation of Take Me With You appeared as a selection of the original portraits alongside found images from a 1960s slide index and my personal collection of found photographs, displayed at Pinhole Coffee in San Francisco.

Cased images: cases commissioned from Modern Day Antique, prints made on aluminum, and copper frames original to the era (approx. 1860-1890.)
Thank you to all of those who came to my apartment studio in the sweaty heat of Sacramento summer, to avid Sacramento photographer Mark Reese for the slide collection, and Rick Levy for helping me document the cased images.
