Artist Statement

The images in this body of work were made all over the world, under all sorts of circumstances. Sometimes I was led to a place for work, sometimes for fun, but in every situation, I found myself most interested in the supposedly small moments. Photography has allowed me to give due importance to all of the bits and pieces of my life, these images are not idealized views of life experience. Instead, they are representative of a conscious choice I have made regarding how and what I choose as my memories. Births, deaths, milestones and change are a part of every life. A face or a smile is not required for me to associate imagery with emotion. In my world, the subtle, the natural and the insignificant are just as powerful as the obviously epic.
