Photography That Tells A Story

In my photography, I strive to not just reflect life and the forms around me, but to interpret them. Most of my photographs are born out of times of exploration, not just into other cultures or locations, but also within the context of daily life and all the joys and struggles it brings. Bringing my camera to my eye, I aim to tell the subject’s story in a way that is dignified and poignant. I feel it is important to remember that we, the viewers, are integral participants of the story.
