Over the past six years, my camera has led me on a personal journey through the unexpected nuances of life. Photography has become my tool to investigate, discover, confront and ultimately portray the complex, fascinating world around us.

Sight is often taken for granted: we frequently assume that people interpret a given situation in similar ways. This could not be further from the truth. In reality, people often perceive identical situations in astonishingly different ways. The beauty of a photograph is that it can compel us to re-examine seemingly mundane scenes and events of everyday life.

In a photograph, as well as on the street, there is always the possibility of seeing the world anew. This is why I look at photographs, and it is what continues to drive me to photograph.
