Art + Photography

ARTIST’S STATEMENT: I headed to Denver’s Capitol Hill on November 6th, 2020 only intending to document Americans’ reaction to Election Day. I was met with a lively, joyous atmosphere that seemed to have been long lost to the despair of 2020. As I walked just a block away from the commotion, I found myself in a starkly different environment. One that struck me as being totally tranquil; a world, and its inhabitants, seemingly oblivious to the history being made nearby.
