About ‘Nothing Gold Can Stay’:
‘Nothing Gold Can Stay’ is a body of work about the fleetingness of youth. My photographs of the boys of Branch Brook Park in Newark, New Jersey describe this ephemerality, and through these photographs, I intend to access a sense of memory and vulnerability to create an experience of love amid life’s chaos and uncertainty.
