“I don’t set out to produce a photograph about one subject or another. I am never without my camera in hand, so I am constantly capturing moments of life as they occur. I have volumes of these moments, some of which just remain as a record of a moment, others of which have been developed into series or more complete ideas as stories unfold. Photography is my language – the way I experience the world, the way I tell untold stories – sometimes my own story, and sometimes the story of another person or place. I am drawn to vibrant color and the quality of natural light, pattern and shadows.”
