Photography has been a part of my life since I was very young, when I kept my older brother company in his darkroom in the basement of our house. My first camera, which I used at the age of six to capture for posterity life at summer camp, was a Kodak Brownie.
Decades elapsed before photography became a serious and important part of my life. Over the past 15 years, I have combined my passion for it with my passion for travel and contact with people of other cultures. I enjoy documenting the daily life of those living in these unfamiliar worlds. I try to capture seemingly mundane moments in a way that communicates how unordinary they truly are. Some of the tools I use to compose my images are color, gesture, facial expression, body language, and geometric shapes, but in the end, it is my heart that tells the story.
