Understanding humanity and life's journey through photography.

I have always found people and human interaction fascinating. Photography is a tool to capture humanity and the beauty of nature. I use the camera to explore the human condition and gain a greater clarity of those experiences that have influenced my artistic vision. At the heart of my work is an exploration of identity, individuality and culture. I strive to project the humanity of my subjects through their personal stories.

My frame of reference is that the photographer and the subject are collaborators in the expressive potential of the photograph. As a photographer I enable the sitter to project their unique point of view. An important part of my creative process is to get to know my subjects through conversations regarding interests and challenges and use these insights to make their lives visible. .
