“I’m a documentary photographer and my goal with every image is to make a connection between the subject in the photograph and the person looking at the photograph. I shoot what is, and let the image speak for itself. People are my ideas and inspiration. That’s what these photographs show.

When people look at my work, I want them to feel a connection. Maybe the subject reminds them of someone or a situation they were in. When they see my work I’d like them to get a feeling of remembrance.”
