I've always been fascinated by the diversity of human culture and the variety of ways people live and the universal strength of human connection. I prefer to work analogue and shoot primarily on 35mm film, process my own film, and have a makeshift darkroom in my bathroom for producing final prints. There is something to the tactile experience of creating art in this way that allows me to slow down and remember the places and moments when and where the photos were taken.
I am driven by curiosity about other people's lives and the struggle to feel connection. These photographs aim to capture unexpected, unpredictable, and intimate pieces of strangers' lives. It is a way of holding on to them, of allowing them to become more real and occupy more space while still remaining unknown. It inspires me to wonder about their story, their emotions, their connections, their hopes and dreams. I'm inspired by photographers like Daido Moriyama and Henri Cartier Bresson and their abilities to capture fleeting moments in peoples lives. With my work I hope to capture moments that leave the viewer wanting to know more about the lives of the people in image. I'm a deeply curious person and hope to inspire others to share that curiosity.
