From Eight PM to Six AM

I photograph at work to break up the monotony of my food service job. Photographing alleviates boredom, repetitive motions, and my longing to go home. During my shift, making images helps me concentrate on the work at hand and passes the time in a more meaningful way. This process slows me down, both at the job and in my practice, and encourages my active observation of the things that I see every day: the customers, the employees, the food preparation, the workplace and the environment they inhabit.
