I take photos of those I get to interview as well as people I happen to come across working as a reporter. I started this project when I was a GA reporter for the Midland Reporter-Telegram in Midland, TX. I upload these images to Instagram with short narratives with the hashtag #SnapshotLives. The project allows me to get outside of the constraints of hard news reporting and highlight a more personal, impressionistic side of the story as well as capture important moments that may not make it into the final news edit.
