"If I had to choose, I’d first be the street-corner, walk-in photo studio, and only then an artist.

When photographing people, my primary concern is bridging the inherent gap of self-perception. Everyone around you includes you in their world, but you, despite dominating your inner world as the sole experiencer, can never fully see yourself within it. This tension between the two spaces in which we constantly exist always fascinated me.

When I photograph someone, I see it as my role to help them navigate this gap with loving eyes."
