Not too long ago I connected some lingering dots and figured out that intention was actually the place to begin, not end. I know that may seem obvious, but it was pretty enlightening for me. In August 2015, I traveled to Ireland. I had planned, or intended, to create informal portraits of people in the countryside. But I ended up in a lot of remote places with few people. I totally fell in love with this place that is steeped in history and faith; it unexpectedly brought up a lot of stuff for me. These images are informal portraits of my experience of Ireland.
