HOW DID THIS START?
I can't exactly recall when I first started taking pictures, but the vivid smell of darkroom chemicals from the days of summer camp are forever imprinted in my memory. Those lazy afternoons transitioned to a photography course in college where I used my father's old 35mm camera. Slowly, I began to realize that this simple tool could convey a near-endless amount of emotions through the use of subject, place, light and angle.
What I love about photography is that fractional slivers of transient time become permanent, and that permanency allows for deep storytelling. The best photographs tell stories that are understood by all, spanning age, language race and religion and allow for introspection and reflection.
