“Broken is how the light gets in” is a series I photographed while traveling through Australia. During this time, I was dealing with a complicated relationship back home and unsure of my life direction. After backpacking the east coast of Australia and talking to locals, I gained a new outlook on life. Everything happens for a reason and the life experiences you make with others are what's most important. I feel this body of work shows my journey of contemplation of self, capturing the feeling of my unknown future but shows the enjoyment of the journey.
