Day-off photography from Burlington, Iowa

Day-off photography from Burlington, Iowa

I knew I wanted to shoot an Iowa town on the Mississippi River, like the town I was raised in. And so, at random, over my morning coffee, I chose Burlington, Iowa. I had only been there once before, just passing through really but I remembered being charmed by it and wanting to explore it more. In my photographic work, I'm always looking to compare and contrast elements that remind me of or differ from my hometown—not just aesthetically but the feelings I associate with my home as well.
