To this day, almost ten years after beginning this series, it is still the one I have the most difficulty unpacking. Despite being a born-and-raised Texan, the identity of "Texan" has never quite felt applicable, if not foreign. This work was born out of curiosity, both of myself and the land I sometimes conflictingly call home.

Mostly photographed with a large format camera, "Middle of Somewhere" is an exploratory series made from all over the state of Texas. Although this is a series I consider complete, the inspiration and impact continue to evolve along with me.
