I am a photographer in Los Angeles, CA. When I am not taking pictures, I am working on a PhD in American Literature, focusing on the influences and collaborations between early twentieth-century American women writers and photographers.
What informs my photographic aesthetic is summed up by writer Annie Dillard who says that, "...beauty and grace are performed whether or not we will or sense them. The least we can do is try to be there." I try to be there with camera in hand.
As for the name "Redzenradish," it's inspired by a haiku by Japanese poet Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828). It challenges me to see things newly no matter where I am as the smallest, most ordinary thing may become a vehicle for transformation.
