Through my photography, I hope to reflect surprising encounters with a world filled with wonder. Not always traditionally beautiful encounters, but paradoxical ones – simplicity in chaos, beauty in imperfection, the joy and sadness in impermanence.
My goal is to present a view that you might not have seen or considered before, to have you see the subject in a new way. If you can sense the essence of the moment, then I’ve done my job.
