Together, At Once

I often think about my photographs as being in relationships with one another. They absorb and reflect our world. They exist by themselves, and come together to reveal something that is both familiar, and full of possibilities. Sometimes, it is hard to tell if I follow my camera or if it follows me.

There are simple moments in life that remind us of one another, instances where just being and seeing are the main events. Photography has become my way to sustain a delicate and perceptive consciousness. I trace the quality of my existence, in full color, and collect the overlooked depth and substance of life in photographs.

Seeing the familiar in you helps me understand the familiar in me.
Seeing the bizarre in you helps me understand the bizarre in me.
