Photography allows me to express my interpretation of the world around me, to explore fragments of life and to interact with people with whom I would normally not engage. My camera is my passport to an unexplored world. I am deeply interested in people. My subject choice derives from my innate curiosity. I am curious as to what lies behind their eyes, where they have been and where they hope to go. My photographs are not always a true representation of the subject in front of my camera. I scrutinize the subjects in front of me, break the paradigms and generalizations and create my own interpretation. An image should evoke a feeling and my goal as a photographer is to determine what that feeling is, whether positive or negative, happy or sad, true or ironic, reality or fantasy. My desire is for my images to trigger something very profound within the observer.
