Three moments, two journeys, and a diary, NO LAWS is a long read, slow burn photoessay set in 2016 over the course of a year in Southwest Montana, Costa Rica, Pennsylvania, and New York. It is a love letter to America, and a divorce from it. Exploring a reconnection to the Americana of "The West," and a disconnection with the idea of expatriation, it wanders in search of home. It takes place in dream, nightmare, and reality, but is never certain which at any time.

It is a messy, visually scattered work, geographically disparate, shot on dirty lenses, lost rolls of film, and full of technical flaws and errors. But who cares? It's 2016. No laws.
