is a Brooklyn based photographer, and his interest for photography came from actively observing the world around him and a consequent desire to capture what he saw. His last project, Nothing Gold Can Stay
, is a tribute to youth and its ephemerality, and photography is the perfect medium to try and capture that. Most of the subjects from Nothing Gold Can Stay
come from complicated backgrounds, but intrinsic in their youth is an almost naive optimism, only present in those who still haven’t had their firsts real let-downs, heartbreaks... or faced any of the life struggles that come as we slowly but surely step into adulthood. The loss of that innocence is sad, and through this images we are invited to get lost in our nostalgia for a little while, and be reminded of our own youth and its endless possibilities, it’s awkwardness, vulnerability… and overall, its fleeting beauty amidst all the chaos.
