There is a beautiful diversity of people and cultures throughout the world. My goal is not to shine a light on those differences, but to reveal the similarities we all share.
I do not wish to impose myself into my photographs. Rather, I wish to observe life as it happens and capture the significance of everyday moments. While my goal is to represent the people in my photos in a 'documentarian' way – undisturbed by my presence – I realize and embrace the connection the act of photography creates. A connection not only between myself and those I photograph, but with those who view the resulting work, long after the fleeting moment has passed in time and distance.
