“Photography is a means and not an end in itself for me. I feel particularly attracted to difficult and challenging issues that do not get as much media attention-very human themes that we can all learn from. Photography is a way to get to people to learn about the complexities of life. By interacting with people, gaining deeper insights into their struggles, I attempt to understand what went wrong and why. And even if I am unable to find those answers, my work has led me to continuously question life. After a project, I often feel richer as a person and I look at the world differently. The themes of my individual projects often depart from a larger theme, then I start digging deeper until I see something intimate and deeply human.”
