through the lens

I thought of through the lens as a way to repurpose items in my vintage camera collection. The full project can be viewed here. It was one of my most unique projects of 2016. Here are my two favorite photos from through the lens.

2016 was a big year for me as a photographer. I have grown a lot through a number of creative challenges. Looking back at what I've done, I feel that 2016 has been the year that I've grown the most. At this point, I can only look forward to what I will do in 2017.

Thank you.
