My interest in photography stems from an inherent need to visually interpret our shared human experience. I look for the quiet details that bind us: a moment of aloneness, an animated gesture, a familiar look in a stranger’s eyes. In these portraits, I focus on the subtleties in the person’s gaze and nuances of their pose in relation to their environment. A figure with relaxed body language and a confident gaze emanates a powerful presence. Through this intimate process, I document the interactions, emotions and expressions that define our existence.
