Statement

Curiosity and understanding drive my photographic pursuit; photography is simultaneously my subjective reaction and impression on the world around me. Although my work is often placed in the documentary or photojournalism fields, I do not label myself as either. Photography is a pursuit, a way of life, and I am constantly wandering and watching while hoping to capture a part of life that I think helps to better understand humanity. Appearing in all of my photographs, people are the key essential ingredient and attraction. I am interested in people and understanding how our ordinary lives connect with others. Political in nature, carefully considered in content, I seek to engage and force participation in understanding the fragile and changing world around us. Filled with difference, the world is a constant source of wonder and allows my own curiosity to lead me through life engaged and concerned.
