Artist Statement

This photograph is taken from my series A Winter in Kandahar and explores the narrative of daily life in Southern Afghanistan. In my early twenties, I served as a Canadian Peacekeeper in Bosnia, and that experience inspired me to take a closer look at issues related to war and its aftermath. My life changed direction in 2007, when I left the military to pursue a career in photography. Soon after, I began visiting conflict and post-conflict regions as a photographer rather than as a soldier. I am interested in finding a way to portray the often overlooked moments surrounding people and places in transition. My intent is to provoke questions and allow the images to suggest stories beyond the evident.
