Buena Vista isn’t necessarily a big tourist attraction, but it has a small-town charm and history and I think its a really beautiful place. I look at Instagram a lot and people posting photos of their exotic vacations, but often we don’t see what their day-to-day lives are really like. As I was walking to work one day, I felt inspired to do a series focusing on the mundane but intriguing things I see every day. Using the hashtag #mytowndaily, I posted every day for a few weeks, and I learned a lot and grew as an artist through the process. The series will be going on exhibition at Southern Virginia University soon — dates TBA. Here’s a selection of the pieces:
