When I travel, my camera is always at hand. I think the sound of the click of the shutter marks my soul, and years later, leaves the moment more vivid to my senses.
In my photographs of people, I try to capture a decisive moment when they reveal a bit of themselves, in the environment where they exist. In these encounters, I must be somewhat of a voyeur, but not an intruder. I try not to shoot until we have come to a silent agreement that I may. I make their images, as my way to share with others what I have been given by my subject and privileged to have witnessed.
I hope each of my photographs immortalizes an instant in which viewers can observe themselves in others’ realities. Look inside them and see what they represent.
