What made you want to be a part of Neighbo(u)r?

This year, I really pushed myself to go out and do more projects. This 823 project was an opportunity I couldn't pass up and I am so glad that I did it.

What was the most challenging part of the project?

Being selective of what to shoot. I usually shoot for my benefit, but with this project it was different. I was suddenly put in a position where what I was shooting would be seen by someone else, which isn't usually the case when shooting for fun. It got me nervous, but in a good way.

What was the most rewarding part of the project?

The most rewarding part of this project would be the international collaborative aspect of Neighbo(u)r.

Did this come easy to you, or did you find it difficult to approach strangers?

I still have a difficult approaching random people, but I'm learning everyday how to be more discreet and quick without anyone noticing (like a ninja).

Who did you take photos of, and why?

I decided to take pictures of my suburbian lifestyle (e.g. my mom doing yard work, the inside of messy rooms on a Sunday afternoon, etc.) because I wanted to showcase the beauty of things that are seemingly mundane.

Did you learn anything about yourself or others during the process?

I learned that I should practice more and dedicate more time to the things I actually care for. I am constantly learning about myself as an "artist". I knew this project would be difficult for me because I am so critical of my own work.

Did you make any new friends?

I had just bought this camera not too long ago then shot this roll on it, so I guess this camera became my friend. Although, it stopped working after the roll, so the friendship was short lived.
