One day, it will all make sense… As for now, we learn. We grow. We shed off our former selves and evolve into a different self. Each new self an accumulation of the last. We learn more. We grow more. Then things slowly start to make some sense.
My development (pun intended!) in the world of photography has been, and still remains a learning process. I’ve grown along the way, carrying the understandings and revelations that have brought me to where I’m currently at. I feel that my work is a collection of collections that are collected in my mind. Each new aperture setting and every shutter released accumulates into a different understanding of something that was known, but now understood. And what makes more sense is that there is always room for growth. But enough with the words. I’ll let my images speak for themselves.

“Sensitive people faced with the prospect of a camera portrait put on a face they think is the one they would like to show to the world… Every so often what lies behind the facade is rare and more wonderful than the subject knows or dares to believe.” Irving Penn
