My photographs explore authentic human moments. I take pictures of life as it happens. I attempt to document what I see and experience, and what others see and experience. I try to capture the beauty of humanity and the exquisiteness of everyday life. My desire as a documentary photographer is to tell stories of people around the world and around the corner. I think every person is remarkable and has something worth sharing.
My work has changed over the past few years as I have narrowed my focus and learned more about who I am and what I want to say with my photography. Over the past two years I have been consumed by cultural anthropology, which is the study of humanity, specifically our music, art, food, language, work, social structure, and belief systems. Through these studies, I now know that my photographs have the power to communicate cultural awareness. I always want my photographs to be authentic, honest, and genuine portrayals of people. I want the people who see my work to be both moved and educated. I want to open their mind to the beauty of reality.
