Close Friends (2023) is a photo-poetry book project in response to the lack of structure for connection between people living in proximity. The camera acts as a tool for connection as I walk around my neighborhood (Upper Monroe, Rochester, NY)  and interact with the people and the environment. When I began this project during the pandemic I met a pair of roommates that had very positive impacts on my life. Having best friends within walking distance boosts mental health and builds a sense of home and belonging.
