My philosophy: I've come to realize that my art has diversity within a powerful individual vision that chronicles the life of people who draw me into their lives to tell their stories and to validate their reason for living. My attraction to story telling grew as my life developed behind a camera. I discovered that it's not how a photographer looks at the world that is important, it is his relationship with his fellow human beings. Through photography these moments of connectivity are frozen in time for all to see. I believe the last thought for the photographer is "Whatever you look to see outside, is waiting inside you to begin your personal documentary of life.”
