I go by SJ, and I’m a film photographer located in the tri-state area.
I’ve been shooting since I was 14, and I try to capture moments in time that we’d like to keep forever. Shooting film is a much more patient process to photography; it’s calculated, it’s concise, and the result is always fascinating. It’s as if I’m seeing a work of art for the first time when I scan a roll. Most of my pictures have an intimate story to tell; I only hope that people can see a bit of themselves in these images.
