I see photography as a way of communication, of sharing my thoughts and observations with others in visual form. Aside from the sheer joy of the process of creating images, photography for me is a means of reflection, introspection, dealing with the complexities of life and living consciously by staying mindful of my surroundings. The practice of freezing the moment and capturing the three-dimensional world on a flat image helps me gather my thoughts and has a meditative and comforting effect on me. It is my wish to share this calming effect with others.
My photos share stories that are first told in the physical world when I capture the exposure, and a second time within the digital darkroom. Here I can reflect the shot again and let my visions and ideas roam free and adjust the image to my liking. Post production is a vital component of my workflow as a photographer.
