THE FOLK & THE LORE
When you know your neighbor's story your are more connected to your community. This is at the core of what The Folk & The Lore represents. Reno's identity is directly tied to the stories from the resident's that live in her borders. Each narrative adding to the unique fingerprint that is "The Biggest Little City."
My personal project, The Folk & The Lore, tells the story of Reno through Live Storytelling, Short Films, and Photographic Essays. It is hosted by
Nevada Museum of Art, and I am always looking for a good local story.
