Sense of Place is a collaboration between American Photographer based in Montreal Tema Stauffer and my Intro Digital Photography class. This is a image based conversation between two diverse group of photographers living in different parts of the world. Students in Los Angeles responded to images by Tema. This idea was initiated following a lively Skype session between Tema and my Intro Digital Photography Class. Inspired students went on to create their own Sense of Place projects

My photographs are about me and my family and consist mostly
of portraits. I am interested in making photographs about both the past and
present. This is why I have made images with both digital and toy cameras. Some
of these photographs actually happened while others are staged.
