I live in rural Carolina near the border of Swaziland, South Africa. Since a child I have loved taking photos. My father said that it was not a real job :) In 2009 I was diagnosed with a severe form of CVID and gave up my real job in dentistry to live my passion and dream. My first project began documenting a small Zulu informal settlement and they have since became my extended family. From there I started documenting my little towns streets asking strangers for their portrait and its going on for year nr six. Trying in my portraits to find the answers to where I belong. The culture here is different and you'll very seldom see a photo without my models permission. This has become a project that the community has joined in by helping me to make a print of every portrait I take and giving it out to these beautiful people. This is the most awesome part of my work! I use my eyes and my heart mostly and a Canon EOS 600, 650D or 750D.......In my opinion the lens you use is key.
