Expressions and impressions of humanity are what I most love to explore through my camera, whether it be through the spontaneous capture of a stranger, a planned portrait, an arranged conceptual shot, or the documentation of the human-touched landscape.
Photography has taught me to look differently at what's around me. One thing I've noticed is that people are pretty nice! Especially when they feel seen. It's a core, human desire to matter and be valued. Photography gives me a tool with which to forge connection and exchange with others. It enables my subject and I to become co-creators of a moment that becomes a part of both our stories.
I also like to use my camera to capture contrived images that explore and expose a theme that I'm interested in. In doing this, I hope to draw the viewer into consideration of what a particular image evokes or provokes.
