ABOUT MY PROCESS

My Work

Photography is an instrument I use to observe the world around me. Looking through the lens and I see subtle details that lead me into one peculiar story after another. And here I am, an observer, fervently trying to capture these stories and their feelings, so that I may create my own. 

As enthusiastic as I might seem as a recorder, my fealty lies in fabrication and creation. All these stories that I have always been collecting have become a muse for the tales I wish to share, tales that I desperately need to refine and perfect.
