Why am I a photographer?

“I first began shoo:ng because the experience of photographing people was a way of ge[ng to know them and saving the experience. It made me feel really alive. Then, during my long adver:sing career, it became a terrific way to solve crea:ve challenges. But s:ll there was always, underneath, the element of wonderment.

Now, as I travel and meet people from different cultures, who kindly allow me into their homes and environments, I am filled with awe as I look through the lens. Some:mes it feels like I’m just sketching elements of personal history as I’m shoo:ng — un:l the shot suddenly appears. That’s when the shuRer really goes to work!
