Family Handyman Approved: DeWalt Job Site Table Saw

Growing up, I fondly recall working with my uncle Mike in his basement workshop. Together, we (mostly he) built lots of small stuff like bird houses, tackle boxes and picture frames.

Years later, when I left apartment living behind and bought a home, I was excited to have a garage and get back to building these sorts of things on my own. The first tool I purchased was a portable table saw. Had this DeWalt Job Site Table Saw been around, it would have been the one! The compact size, combined with the rip capacity and included stand, make this tool stand out against the rest.

I tested this product and like it a lot. Whether you’re a DIYer or a professional, if you’re in the market for a compact table saw, I’m confident you’ll like it, too.

What is the DeWalt Job Site Table Saw?

Jobsite table saws — often called compact, benchtop, or portable — are the smaller and easier-to-haul cousin of stationary contractor or cabinet saws. Portable table saws are ideal for anyone who wants to rip boards or sheet stock on the fly or ata jobsite.

This DeWalt saw (model No. DWE7491RS) features robust a 15-amp motor, a cast aluminum table and a full size 5/8-in arbor which accepts standard 10-inch saw blades. The reliable, accurate rack and pinion fence system allows you to rip boards up to three inches thick and 32-1/2-in. wide, a best-in-class rip capacity.

The sturdy stand with wheels took a few minutes to assemble — a piece of cake. The saw comes with a 24-tooth saw blade, miter gauge, push stick, and blade guard assembly. And anyone running the machine inside a garage or jobsite will appreciate the 2-1/2-in. dust collection port.

How We Tested It

I look for maneuverability, power and precision in a jobsite table saw. To test it, I carried the saw up and down a flight of stairs and in and out of the bed of my truck a few times.

I needed at least 50 cuts to get a feel for the saw’s overall power and accuracy, so I worked through the scrap pile in the corner of my garage. I ripped down 2×6 studs; a variety of plywood, medium density fiberboard (MDF), oriented strand board (OSB) and melamine; small chunks of birch and oak; and even a cutoff of a 4×4 fence post.

Performance Review

This table saw is great. The 15-amp motor easily cut through all the lumber and wood products I could feed into it. But the highlight was the rack and pinion fence system. Its accuracy, durability and ease of use make it ideal for any new homeowner or general contractor.

The innovative, tool free, riving knife release lever makes switching between the riving knife and blade guard assembly fast and easy. The included stand is smooth and maneuverable, and breaks down or sets up in seconds.

Value

An old adage says you should buy the nicest tool you can afford.  If this DeWalt Job Site Table Saw falls within your budget, it might be the nicest one for you. The potent power, extensive list of features and included stand make this tool a fantastic value even at the lofty price.

Reliability and Durability

DeWalt has been making durable and dependable high-quality tools for almost a hundred years. This is no exception.

This beefy unit, with its the steel frame and legs, cast aluminum table and the 15-amp electric motor, weighs in at nearly 100-lbs. That adds to the saw’s stability while in use — a plus — though it makes it more difficult to lug around.

But I’ll take stability over portability any day. On several occasions I’ve witnessed a lightweight jobsite table saw wobble while someone fed a long deck board or sheet of plywood into it.  Not only is this dangerous, it ruins the accuracy of your cut, which will have to be made again.

Ease of Use

The DeWalt Job Site Table Saw is extremely user-friendly. From its dial-driven rack and pinion fence system to its tool-free lever for switching between the writhing knife and a blade guard assembly, this saw is full of features that make for a straightforward user experience.

Though not ideal to dead lift because of its heft, the saw handles much like a hand truck when upright, easily navigating stairs or uneven terrain. It can easily be set up or broken down by a single user.

In general, while table saws can be a valuable part of your tool collection, they can also be dangerous. Be sure to read the owner’s manual and understand proper operation.

Why You Should Buy This

If you’re in the market for a jobsite table saw, take a hard look at this DeWalt.  The quality, performance and lengthy list of features will benefit you whether you’re a woodworking newbie, DIY fanatic or seasoned contracting professional. DeWalt also backs its craftsmanship with a three-year warranty.

Take Two: Lawmakers again send climate bill to Charlie Baker

Sweeping climate policy legislation is back on Gov. Charlie Baker’s desk two weeks after he rejected a previous iteration of the same bill.

After Baker vetoed the bill following the end of last session, the House and Senate worked quickly to refile and pass the same language.

The timing of their votes last term — taken the second-to-last day of the session — did not leave the Legislature enough time to override Baker’s veto, despite having enough support behind the bill to do so. In the new session lawmakers will have an opportunity to respond to any amendments or a veto from the governor.

“We are on the cusp of a sustainability revolution,” Sen. Marc Pacheco, D-Taunton, proclaimed during Thursday’s session as he urged his colleagues to build on the bill and engage in more ambitious proposals in the new session.

Among other measures, the bill would lock the state into its goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, set interim emission reduction targets, establish appliance energy efficiency standards, authorize additional purchases of offshore wind power and codify protections for environmental justice communities.

Rep. Thomas Golden, D-Lowell, and Sen. Michael Barrett, D-Lexington, refiled the bill (S 9) this session. The two Democrats led the five months of negotiations that produced final legislation last term.

Barrett said Thursday that he had spoken with senators about the bill over the past week, in part to allay specific constituent concerns.

Barrett said new Sen. Adam Gomez, D-Springfield, who was not a member of the Senate when the bill passed on Jan. 4, is “reassured” about a five-year moratorium on biomass projects in western Massachusetts, and Sen. Nick Collins, D-South Boston, had brought forward a “legitimate question” from the restaurant industry about appliance efficiency standards.

New House Speaker Ronald Mariano and Senate President Karen Spilka, in a Jan. 19 joint statement, said the bill “rejects the false choice between economic growth and addressing climate change” and pledged to send it back to Baker, who cited concerns about the bill’s potential to hold down housing production in his veto message.

Baker has said that if he had time he would have rather returned the climate bill with recommended amendments instead of vetoing it.

Colorado reaches $1.6 million settlement over 2015 Gold King Mine blowout

The Sunnyside Gold Corporation will pay $1.6 million to settle environmental damage claims connected to the 2015 Gold King Mine spill that released a yellow plume of heavy metals into the Animas River, the Colorado Attorney General’s Office announced Monday.

The agreement, which isn’t yet finalized, stipulates that the money must go toward restoration projects within the Bonita Peak Mining District Superfund Site, attorney general spokesman Lawrence Pacheco said in a news release. It would also release the corporation from additional liability with the state moving forward.

The $1.6 million settlement marks the latest in a series of such agreements stemming from the Gold King Mine spill. Sunnyside agreed earlier this year to pay $10 million to the Navajo Nation and $11 million to New Mexico.

The newly announced settlement doesn’t amount to much money when compared to the millions that already have been spent in the area, said Peter Butler, chair of the Bonita Peak Mining District Community Advisory Group. Most of that money went toward attorneys and consultants trying to determine liability rather than actual cleanup efforts, he said.

“I think all the different parties spent close to $70 million in the last five years,” said Butler, a Durango resident. “Not much cleanup effort, though, almost all study. And there’s been almost no improvement in water quality.”

Butler added that he’s not surprised the settlement is so small. Part of that could be, he said, because Sunnyside has cooperated well with cleanup efforts. Another part of that could be because of the complicated liability issues surrounding the Gold King Mine spill.

A cleanup crew led by the Environmental Protection Agency inadvertently triggered the 3-million-gallon spill and The Denver Post reported in 2016 that the agency official overseeing the work knew of the blowout danger well beforehand.

The spill sent at least 880,000 pounds of metals into the Animas River, through three states and across the land of two Native American tribes.

“It’s an interesting, tangled web of liability up there,” said Marcel Gaztambide, who also sits on the advisory group with Butler.

The Sunnyside Gold Corporation did not own the Gold King Mine nor was the corporation responsible for the 2015 spill, Gina Myers, director of the company’s reclaiming operations, said in an email.

Rather, Butler said, Sunnyside installed concrete bulkheads downstream from the mine, which raised water levels in the area, making the spill worse.

For those in the area in August 2015, the spill was horrifying, Gaztambide said.

“The entire river turned bright orange,” said Gaztambide, who was not in town at the time. “There was a lot of concern for the fish in the river system.”

And there was more concern still for the farmers downstream whose crops rely on that water, Gaztambide said.

“But for the folks that knew the most about the Animas River, it wasn’t a big surprise,” Gaztambide added. “We’ve known about the problem of acid mine drainage for a long time.”

He called the 2015 blowout a symptom of a much larger problem of abandoned mines in the area. Research into the environmental damage caused by the spill and the other mines continues, Gaztambide added, so it’s difficult to say whether $1.6 million is enough.

For context, Butler said the EPA is currently cleaning drainage coming out of the mine, and operating that treatment plant costs about $2.5 million a year.

“So $1.6 million wouldn’t even run that for a year,” he said.

Still, Gaztambide said the money can be put to good use in what amounts to a massive cleanup project within which much work remains.

In a statement, Attorney General Phil Weiser called the settlement a “step in the right direction to address the damage suffered in southwest Colorado and the Four Corners region.”

If the settlement is finalized, Colorado Natural Resources Trustees will use the money for projects meant to restore damage from the 2015 spill and other hazardous releases in the area, Pacheco said.

The agreement itself will be filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Denver, starting a 30-day public comment process. The judge overseeing the case will then consider the agreements and comments submitted before deciding whether to accept the settlement.

Cycling for climate justice | Anabaptist World

For five days in July, my job with Mennonite Central Committee East Coast became unusually exciting as I immersed myself in a world of spinning bicycle wheels, lush East Coast forests and spontaneous laughter.

As a representative for MCC, I was riding my bike with 18 young adult cross-country cyclists with the Center for Sustainable Climate Solutions climate ride. This ride was a perfect intersection of my personal passions — riding bicycles and advocating for climate justice.

The climate riders, as the cross-country cyclists were called, began their journey in Seattle on May 31 and covered 3,737 miles by the time they finished on July 28. Along the way they held town hall meetings to discuss climate change and engaged in many informal conversations.

Their destination was Washington, where they would speak to legislators about the need to support climate justice. They welcomed me to advocate with them and ride the last 326 miles from Pittsburgh.

Conversations about creation care and climate change — its causes, effects and solutions — punctuated the soft and persistent crunch of gravel beneath bicycle tires.

I heard climate riders tell somber stories of riding through forests and towns in eastern Washington state destroyed by last year’s wildfires. Others shared about how, on one of the hottest days of the ride, they tried to find drinking water in a small town in Nebraska only to be told that the water wasn’t safe to drink.

They talked to an elderly farmer in Wyoming who told them that, after 40 years of farming, his hay production has suddenly and dramatically dropped this year due to the heat and drought. My heart sank when I heard these stories, despite the heart-pumping pace I kept as I pedaled down the trail alongside them.

Living in Lancaster County, Pa., I haven’t seen my community directly experience the most devastating effects of climate change. Working with MCC, however, I know that many of our global partners are already being severely impacted by long-term changes in typical weather patterns.

I’m glad to be part of an organization that believes that climate change is an urgent issue and sees climate action as critically important. MCC’s vision statement says, “We envision communities worldwide in right relationship with God, one another and creation.”

The climate riders saw the impact of climate change in the U.S. as they rode, but four of them also had seen the international effects when they served with MCC’s Serving and Learning Together (SALT) program. They each took time after a day’s ride to talk to me about their observations.

Loren Friesen, a freelance multimedia producer in Fresno, Calif., served with Serving and Learning Together for six months in 2019-20 in Durban, South Africa. His term was shortened by the COVID-19 pandemic. He connected the CSCS bike trip with the global inequities of climate change when it comes to migrants and refugees: He and other cyclists were voluntarily exposing themselves to weather conditions and had economic resources, while uprooted people around the world don’t have the same cushion.

Greta Lapp Klassen is a student at Goshen College, studying English and art. She served with SALT in 2018-19 in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. She saw water — or lack of it — as a big climate issue both in the western U.S. and in Bolivia. She told about a lake near Santa Cruz that was a life source for Indigenous fishing communities, but now it’s completely dried up. As a result, Indigenous fishermen were displaced and had to move to the city to find work. She said, “Going to places where entire communities and cultures were displaced [due to climate change] was a huge awakening for me.”

Liz Miller, a resident director at Hesston College, served with SALT in 2018-19 in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. During her SALT assignment she saw and experienced how her host community didn’t have sufficient access to clean water. The community’s water source dried up, and her host family had to get their water from trucks that came into the community every day. The problem was, the water’s quality varied. Some weeks, her host family had to use Styrofoam plates and cups because they couldn’t get clean water to wash dishes. She said, “To be able to experience that in Honduras really brought me a new understanding of just how very life-giving water is. I experienced that again on this bike trip. When we were traveling through the [American] west, water again became this incredible life source.”

Caleb Schrock-Hurst, an Eastern Mennonite Seminary student, served as a SALT participant and a service worker in 2018-20 in Hanoi, Vietnam. He saw climate change and environmental injustice in Vietnam through rising sea levels, warm winters and hotter, drier summers. He saw how Vietnamese people, especially farmers, feel vulnerable to the changing climate due to environmental and geopolitical factors that limit reliable access to water.

Juan Sebastian Pacheco Lozano, peace and justice coordinator with MCC’s Great Lakes region, joined the climate riders for three days. He rode from Indiana Dunes National Park in Chesterton, Ind., to Goshen College. He said, “Part of our mandate as Christians is to care for others, to care for creation and the environment.”

These stories illustrate the urgent need for MCC’s work in climate adaptation and mitigation.

MCC accompanies vulnerable people around the world who are experiencing the harshest effects of climate change. In places like Burkina Faso, we provide soil and water conservation training to farmers who must adapt to changing weather patterns.

We work to mitigate climate change by hearing and amplifying the voices of our partners around the world. In the U.S. and Canada, MCC asks government leaders to create policies that reduce the factors that cause climate change. The riders and I took these perspectives to our legislators.

I must admit, during those five days of riding and camping I simmered in anxiety about the advocacy meetings that awaited us. I’d never met with an elected representative, much less while wearing sweaty and dusty bike clothes. We all smelled as you’d expect we would after riding 50 miles on a hot July day.

Anxious thoughts swirled: Will my congressperson’s office care about what I have to say? Will I be able to communicate my thoughts clearly? I am not an expert on climate legislation!

Fortunately, MCC U.S. Washington Office staff, who arranged these in-person and virtual meetings, prepared me and the other riders well. In our meetings with policymakers, we shared stories from our bike trip and asked our elected officials to support domestic policy that cares for creation and the people who are most vulnerable to climate change.

My meeting was smooth and enjoyable. The staffer did care what I had to share. I left the meeting feeling accomplished and joyful (and a bit relieved) because I know that being an advocate is an act of hope and love.

After pedaling and talking with climate riders, I feel surprisingly hopeful in the face of our changing climate. Climate change is a big issue that affects all of us in one way or another. It can be overwhelming to think about.

Riding a bicycle across the continental U.S. is also a big and daunting thing. But when you have a community of people to support you and care for creation alongside you, big things can be accomplished. Just ask the climate riders.

Laura Pauls-Thomas is a communications and donor relations associate for Mennonite Central Committee East Coast. This article was distributed by MCC.

How a change in photography can inspire a change in self

Photography isn’t just a job or a hobby. If you really dive into it, it can change the way you feel about life and the world in the most profound ways. Part of that is developing skills and experience, but it’s also about having the right kit.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with MPB, an online platform for used photography and videography equipment, to explore the idea that making a change in your photography can lead to a fundamental change in your life in general.

In this article, we speak to five photographers about their photographic journey, the role that their kit has played, and how their evolving practice has reshaped their lives for the better.

Sade Fasanya: “It’s a safe place where I feel at peace.”

There are many ways that photography can change your life. For Sade Fasanya, a Nigerian-American visual storyteller based in NYC, it’s about achieving an inner sense of calm. “Photography is a form of meditation for me,” she explains. “It’s a safe place where I feel at peace and limitless in creating. Hearing a shutter close has become one of my favourite sounds.”

One of three co-founders of the visual artist collective Souls in Focus, Sade works within different genres of photography, including film, portraiture, street, and documentary style. “My work seeks to share the stories of people embedded in their community and culture,” she says. “Many of those visual stories spark conversations that I’m hopeful can spark positive change.”

Sade’s photographic journey

The equipment Sade uses is central to the success of her practice. “I love the range of my kit. Having both longer and shorter focal lengths allows me to comfortably photograph portraits, street or landscape scenes. The bonus for me is recently diving into film photography this year and experimenting with different film stocks and film cameras.”

Her first camera was a Canon Rebel T5 with a 50mm lens, which she used for about three years. And she’s happy with how her kit has matured over the years.

“I’m currently photographing with a FujiFilm XT3 using a 23mm lens (35mm equivalent on full-frame) and a 35mm lens (50mm equivalent on full-frame),” she reveals. “I’ve also added some film cameras to my kit, and those include a 35mm point-and-shoot Canon Snappy Lx, Minolta 4000si SLR, and a Pentax 645N medium format camera. I have a range of lenses for the film cameras, including a 55-110mm and 28-70mm.”

As her kit has evolved, so has her work. “Within the past two years, I’ve been working more in portraiture,” she says. “When I first started shooting, I was shy to photograph people one to one. As I’ve become more confident in my skills, as well as sharpening my emotional intelligence, I enjoy connecting with the people I’m photographing and listening to their different stories.”

Ashley Abreu: “I call myself a late bloomer.”

Another way that photography can change your life is by giving you a unique opportunity to communicate your thoughts and perspectives with others. That’s been the case for Ashley Abreu, a photographer of Dominican descent, born and raised in New York City, who specialises in portraits, street photography and cinematography.

“Photography has allowed me to express myself in ways I’m not comfortable doing in the non-creative world,” she explains. “I never grew up creatively expressing myself. I always suppressed that side of myself. I like to call myself a late bloomer because it took me a while to learn that through photography, I felt confidently free.

“Who I am as a photographer is separate to who I am as a regular everyday person,” she adds. “Some of us aren’t naturally confident, but when I immerse myself within my photography, I am someone completely different. I am someone who I have always dreamed and wanted to be.”

Ashley’s photographic journey

Ashley’s journey began with her first camera, a Nikon D3200 with a starter lens. “I actually accidentally broke it on the very second week of having it: entirely by accident,” she recalls. “After this, a few years had passed, and I was gifted a Canon AE1, which I currently still have but do not use.”

Right now, she’s using another Canon AE1 (all black), Mamiya C2 and a Sony A7Rii. “Growing up, I have always been obsessed with TLR cameras, in particular, a Rolleiflex,” she says. “I settled for a Mamiyaflex once I felt like I was creatively ready to move from 35mm to 120mm. I’ve been hooked ever since.”

Ashley first started shooting about six years ago. “All I ever tried to capture was what I saw,” she says. “Growing up in NYC, I wanted everyone to see my perspective. I think everyone feels that same way too. But after some time, I realised how powerful my mind and my creativity was. From there, I wanted to help people create worlds where they truly felt invincible.

“Portraiture is where I am now, but I’d like to think that what I’m creating is unique to myself, as well as the person who is in front of the lens. And that it is helping them be more confident with themselves when they see the images and the beauty I can capture. Because without photography, I wouldn’t be who I am today.”

Michael Pacheco: “It allows me to express my feelings in ways words can’t.”

For Michael Pacheco, a photographer based in Brooklyn specialising in nightscape, street, and documentary, photography has changed how he interacts with people on an emotional level.

“All too often, feeling in the human experience is something that can be so fleeting; a feeling can come and go as quickly as it is perceived,” he explains. “But photography lets us capture the feeling of a moment and store it for the future.

“For me, photography has changed how I connect with the people and objects around us. It’s helped me capture emotions that I thought were uncategorisable and bridge the gap of feelings that lack a translation in English. Like a visual thesaurus, photos have allowed me to express my feelings in ways words simply can’t.”

Michael’s photographic journey

Michael got his first piece of kit, aged 10, a Kodak EasyShare C330. Then, in high school, he purchased his first SLR, a Canon Rebel XS. “These days, my current kit is the Hasselblad X1D with the XCD 45P and the XHC 35-90mm,” he says.

“When I look at the kit I’m using today, the first standout is the increase in quality of the image. The Hasselblad X1D has a large, 43.8 x 32.9mm medium format sensor, which allows for a much higher dynamic range and a stunning level of detail that I’ve never had available to me. It really shows how far digital cameras have come in such a short amount of time.

“I really enjoy the feel of the X1D, the grip is excellent, and with the 45P, the camera is about the same size as a full-frame mirrorless camera,” he continues. “The larger sensor really lets me consider my subject and composition in a way that I never had to before.

“I tend to push the sensor to its limits regularly using it handheld in lowlight in excess of 3200iso. Using any other camera this way would deliver missed images, but the X1D has no issue delivering consistent and accurate colour all the way up to 12800iso. This allows me to capture images that I might have otherwise missed.”

His personal style, he feels, has remained consistent over the years. “The biggest change in my work comes from my subject matter,” he adds. “Six months ago, I was shooting a lot of work in inclement weather at night; currently, I’m finding myself shooting people much more. Wherever the subject, I’ll be there to capture it; and knowing that my gear compliments my photographic style, I know I’ll never miss a moment.”

Kiren: “It constantly changes how I feel.”

The way photography changes your life isn’t always a “one-and-done” deal. Kiren, a UK photographer living and working in Berlin, says: “Photography constantly changes the way I feel, with the plethora of images floating around and how an image can transport you can be deeply enjoyable and provocative all at once. I don’t think it makes me feel one thing, but lots of things.”

His work today focuses on “lifestyle and whatever interests me in the first world country I live in.” Yet, in an era when anyone can take a picture with their phone, Kiren notes that many people no longer see the importance of photography. “But it has this provocative power which can inspire, motivate and transport you to feel and care,” he points out.

“Some images make you happy, some make you sad, and some make you contemplate and think. So yes, there are photographers who have made a very important change by what they do and the images they produce.”

Kiren’s photographic journey

Kiren’s first piece of kit was a point and shoot digital Kodak camera his family got him for Christmas. “It came with a cute little printer which was great,” he recalls. “But the first proper piece of kit I brought was a Canon 1100D with a kit lens.”

Nowadays, he predominantly shoots film, and his main two cameras are a Nikon FA and Mamiya 645. “The thing I love about the gear I use today, “he says, “is the simplicity of these cameras. Shooting film, you really slow down and have to chase the light. It really creates a sense of nostalgia, and I love old things that stand the test of time.”

This change in kit has parallelled an evolution of his practice. “My photography has changed as my skills have grown, and the camera has become a part of me,” he explains. “I used to trawl the streets of London with a camera in hand trying to capture everyone and anyone to suit frames I had seen in movies. But now, I like to direct the frame myself. Rather than capturing real moments, I’m working on portraiture and editorial work, which has given my work a whole new lease of life and feels like I’m starting all over again.

“I love the opportunities photography brings, the stories, the people and adventures,” he adds. “I think it will constantly evolve and grow, and that is a good thing as you need change and to constantly challenge yourself.”

Tahiti Abdulbasir: “It was an escape for me.”

From everything we’ve learned so far, the way photography changes how you feel varies hugely from person to person. For Tauhidah Abdulbasir, a native New Yorker, it provided the clear focus she needed in her life.

“Photography has changed the way I feel because when I went back into as a full-time freelancer, it was an escape for me,” Tauhidah explains. “Outside of the world of photography lies personal battles and struggles, and it was a way for me to not focus so much on the if, and’s or maybes, but on the right now.”

She also likes the idea her photography prompts a change in her subjects too. “Often, we forget there’s a world much bigger than what we see and know,” she points out. “And when people step in front of my camera, it’s an opportunity to see things differently, especially yourself as an individual. Maybe someone might want to change how they wear a garment or play around with the lighting. I like to think the change usually happens organically and when you least expect it to.”

She believes it has the power to change the world, too. “I think photography has changed a lot of the world in which we see and live, to be honest,” she says. “A book that I reference a lot is Magnum Contact Sheets. It’s a chronological look at how photography has evolved in the world of photojournalism and documentary photography. Without documentation through photographs, we’d never be able to understand or grasp narratives outside of our own.”

Tahiti’s photographic journey

Tahiti’s first experiences as an artist began at a very young age, “being surrounded by many of the things people flock to this unapologetic city for,” she recalls. “My mom and dad heavily played a role by being immersed in the scene of 1980s NYC and their documentation of that through photographs. Freshman year of college, I purchased my first pro-level DSLR camera, a Nikon D3000, and began testing any and all possibilities I could think of. The people, the communities, and the daily lives of New Yorkers became my backdrop.”

She’s now shooting with a full film kit: “Mamiya RB67 and a Nikon F100, to name a few. What I love about what I am using now is that my primary camera is older than I am, and yet it remains a workhorse for many young photographers now. It shows how vital circularity is to both digital and film photography. It’s also allowed me to slow things down and really think about all the elements that make creating images unique.”

Consequently, she feels her work has improved in strides. “You can see a lot of immaturity in my early work,” she says. “I can see that my subjects, as well as myself, were finding our place in the world which didn’t make for the best photographs at the time, now looking back. It was difficult to have a voice through my work while ultimately not knowing who I was as a person.

“But now, instead of approaching a photoshoot with the intention of being overly elaborate, I take the time to make sure there is a level of comfort between the camera and the subject, which has changed how all of my work is conveyed.”
