Human lives are intricate and purposeful…much like the veins of a petal or the roots of an elm. Each is deserving of preservation, care and attention. As a photographer, my north star is to document time in an authentic, artistic way. It is my honor to be a listener and a translator of peoples’ stories, from the large moments to the small, in between ones. To be a photographer is, as I see it, to give testimony in photo form to the origins of a tale. Hans Christian Andersen said, “Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale.” He told the human experience through words. I tell the human experience through photographs.
It is my honor to share from a quiet but observant distance the undertaking of an adventure on this planet that brings delight to not only the subjects of my art, but also those that take the time to appreciate wonder everywhere. I want my work with you to be akin to capturing fireflies in a jar. To appreciate things that often feel out of grasp, but with patience, tending, and care become the most beautiful parts of any avenue.
The tales we tell ourselves, our family, and our friends can often be better told with few or no words. The intention of capturing beauty through care is the most important part of preserving stories. I would be honored to nurture your stories through my art in the same delicate manner one would catch a firefly.
