Photography has always been a tool I've used to better understand the world I live in. Whether facing conflict or encountering something beautiful, I seek to capture a view of what I see is happening and to have the images tell a story. What I see is my point of view, one that inspires me to initiate a conversation about experience. Photography, for me, is a connection I forge with people and place, and occasionally to things.
