Introduction to Project Alchemy

Alchemy /noun/: a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.

I’m usually working on some sort of project whether it’s with photography or otherwise. Having numerous developments helps me stay focused and creates new skillsets. I wanted to take a few moments and introduce one of my most beloved projects.

For quite some time, I’ve been driven to inspire others to take a deeper look and drop their self-projective filters. People tend to rationalize the mindset of “You need to think like me and see the world like me.” Everyone has their own stories and life experiences that exist within, and these confines tend to become all-encompassing until they only see their own perspective.

Constantly, I see people get stuck in life with no association, and human beings need that social connection. There is an emphasis on “what will best serve me” while negating other people. I’ve seen a lot of people expect to be understood without likewise seeking to understand others. This causes disconnect.

That’s where Project Alchemy comes in.

I began this project to show there’s more than what meets the eye when we look at someone. It’s my desire to help people understand that fellow humans are more than physical characteristics. I want to inspire people to take a moment to look deeper and realize people around them may be going through the same things as themselves, This small act creates common ground. Slowly, a transformation can be witnessed. It’s taking something common (a face to face interaction) and making it into something special (a deeper heartfelt connection). Project Alchemy is about the process of transformation to see the deeper parts of people — The goal of this project is to inspire you to see other people for who they are, where they come from, and where they are going.

I can’t wait to share more of this story with you.
