“My work tells the stories of individuals from all over the world; those who’s history and ancestry are told within their faces. Using the relationship of people and their environments, I create a candid intimacy that connect us to each other. I am deeply moved by those who work with their hands, keeping alive the artifacts of humanity. I find great importance in the passing down of trades from generation to generation, commanding a presence and pride as craft-makers and workers of dying traditions.
Through my work, I try to recreate the emotional content of a time, place or face that I fear will be lost in the near future. I am interested in capturing the odd experiences of the human condition. The simple, quiet moments between large events. The impacting details that make up life that are easily forgotten.”
