my style is strongly influenced by my early passion for sketching and drawing. this advanced me to start expressing this vision through the camera in 2009. i draw upon classical aesthetics, such as ancient greek sculpture as well as impressionism and the pre-raphaelites. This artistic philosophy manifests itself in projects with a photojournalistic approach, whereby I look to capture the aesthetic/"le beau" even in adverse situations. this is brought to life by the use of obsolete positive film and traditional darkroom printing techniques. My recent work demonstrate fluidity in both extreme convergence and divergence, demonstrating the notions of egalitarianism and universality.
