“My photos meditate on the idea of what it is to exist. Through photography, I explore daily interactions with other people and the objects all around. My eye gravitates toward those small moments in time which would otherwise go unnoticed and eventually forgotten. I seek to capture and keep, these beautiful and graceful coincidences of life to fully bring them justice.”
