About the Gallery

According to The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, the word “vellichor” references “the strange wistfulness of used bookstores.” Being an avid reader and library patron from a young age, this sense of warm intimacy from books is one that I know well. 

The smell of the pages, the promise of adventure between the bindings, the feeling of an old friend.

 These are the feelings I wish to encapsulate with my photographs, as I take mundane objects and try to give them both a fresh perspective while attempting to preserve their familiarity.

Below are six image categories. Please feel free to click on those of interest to see more of my photographs related to that category.
