How I see things
As a child, I wanted to be a painter and even had an art show at school when I was 8 years old. However, I only discovered photography at the age of 24 and I knew immediately that this will be for life.
My work is about capturing unique perspectives and evoking powerful emotions. My images may appear edited, but they are not - it's all straight from the camera. I see myself as an emotional awakener, using photography to elicit intense feelings. I seek to take my audience on a journey that transcends the visual, touching on something deeper and more personal, unearthing emotions they never knew existed.
