    Reply is a collaborative body of work with Micah Cash. This work is about the process of collaboration. Our goal was to discover how two artists could visually challenge one another. We created a simple set of constraints to follow, in which we would text each other one photograph every Friday for as long as the project needed.  The final body of work contains 48 photographs made over 24 weeks; the images we shared were made in response to the ones that preceded them. Our replies were rarely linear; an image received on week three could inform one made months later. Over time, visual conversations formed. The conversations became groupings - vignettes that circled around common imagery, themes, or colors.  Each photograph has not one, but two authors. Each work could not exist without those that were made before.
