There is an uncomplicated and peaceful world that I see through my camera that is in conflict with the evidence and reality of the fragile and uncertain world that I live in. My photography captures this world as an amalgamation of chance encounters and random accidents.
Often viewed from afar so that I can take in the full palette of shapes and light before me, I document things that other people overlook; the serendipitous moments that make life interesting: the presentation of contradictions, innocence and humor. I don’t set out to capture these emotions, I just find them; here and there: wedged between the here and now: a rift between the dimensions.My family, personal history and ideology are an important part of my story telling. I love children; dislike confrontation; am continuously puzzled by acts of inhumanity. I believe in the contagiousness of laughter and the joy of music and art.
