In early 2016, after the death of my girlfriend, love and partner of 12 years to metastatic breast cancer, I made a sudden relocation to a third floor attic loft in a St. Paul, Minnesota neighborhood. During times of introspection and grief, adjusting to my new reality, I began making images from the skylight and other windows of my new rooftop views. It became a personal challenge to capture something different with each photograph from these narrow perspectives. A series developed from this daily practice of observation that I began calling my ‘Loft views’. Images mostly capturing the mood of the day’s light, weather and passage of time in these window framed landscapes.
