I discovered photography at the age of 15 when I was accepted to the High School of Music & Art. I often stayed up very late working in the lab and spent whole weekends developing films. Art soon became a strong new force in my life and photography helped me not only to explain and express myself but also enabled me to see the world through different eyes. My photographs deal with childhood and family, beauty and transience, lust and suffering, life and death.
The projects I create often focus on and explore different communities and social themes but a constant thread running parallel through my work is a deep interest in the relationship that individuals have to both their social and more intimate personal identities. My goal is to use my art to highlight positive societal changes by showing the individual, the outsider, and their behavior
