one of the great joys of creating art is to collaborate with a fellow artist on a shared project.  such was the case with samesky.2014.  i joined with fellow photographer, chandra sandoval, on a daily photographic "conversation" series.  one would send out a single image, the other would "respond" by pairing the image and creating a completed diptych. the heart of the project was a 54 day span of time in which chandra traveled throughout europe, but we continued for several months after her return for the love (and habit) of the project.  we logged the miles between us, but shared no other information ---- no hints on what to pair it with, nor discussions on our thought process.  it was a quiet, visual conversation, by two friends under one sky.  to see other work by chandra, you can find her here.  please be patient while this page loads!
