My desire is to create introspective experiences for the viewer, photographs that blur the lines between street photography, narrative storytelling and photographic fine art. I aim to make photographs that tell stories of both myself and the central characters in the frame. I see my photographs as a study of life and the human condition, how we aim to break out of solitude, vulnerability and our singular identity in order to relate to the experiences of others, especially those we live amongst. My own experience with this tension is shown in how I document the moments that catch my eye. I have always observed from a distance, listening to others speak, learning from their nuances and mannerisms, but with a desire to come in closer. Photography has become my way to confidently break out of my own isolation and join the collective, all the while learning more about my own life and the life that surrounds me.
