"Every person that I photographed volunteered to have their photo taken. I wasn't looking for anyone specific other than them being willing to have their portrait taken."
"Throughout my time photographing the series, I made sure to include as many people as I could from all genders, races, sexualities, and ages."
"Provincetown thrives on the diversity and individuality of the people that come through the town and I wanted to make sure that I attempted to capture that uniqueness."
"I have photographed over 200 people (and counting) so it's hard to pick one favorite [...] This photo of Richard particularly stands out as an example of someone who understood my only direction, 'be yourself.'"
"Having Brian Sims, the first openly gay elected state legislator in Pennsylvania, ask me to have his portrait taken was definitely a highlight of summer. It was the first time that I realized people were recognizing my work around Provincetown."
"What became apparent as the summer draws to a close is that this series has become an archive, a chronology of Provincetown Summer 2014. Next year, a whole slew of new people, costumes, and of course props will be in town, representing 2015."
"Ideally, I would love to come back every summer to create a new edition of Portraits In Provincetown and have these photo become an annual tradition that people will recognize and look forward to participating in."
