“A person’s work is nothing but a long journey to recover, through the detours of art, the two or three simple and great images which first gained access to their hearts.” ~Albert Camus
Photography allows me to meld passions for storytelling, art, and the unraveling of the human condition through a tool I can take anywhere. With a camera, isolated moments are whirled into a fusion of truth and art and sent out into the world telling stories that simply would not have the same effect if told through any other medium. I used to think photography had to fall into one of two distinct categories: fine art or documentary. It seemed that 'artistic photography' forced one to turn reality into abstract, whereas 'photojournalism' made the abstract concrete. I feel pulled toward both realms, and seek to strike a balance between them in my work: to make images through a fine artist’s eye that tell powerful stories of quiet voices across the globe.

"There is no use trying, said Alice; one can't believe impossible things. I dare say you haven't had much practice, said the Queen. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
