San Francisco, CA
What interests me are our differences. It is our differences that make us human. It is our connection to each other that makes our humanity. I’m fascinated with how our perspectives on life and each other are shaped and influenced by the different ways we live, experience, and relate to the world. We need to approach life through an exploratory lens of human connection and empathy, one void of judgment and misconceptions. The camera provides us a window into our differences and helps breakdown the barriers of misunderstanding that divide us. With each shot, I aim to provide an alternate viewpoint from the familiar. It is from here a new realization can take hold, our commonality is more prominent than our differences. It is from this new place of origin that we may share our life stories with bold and beautiful honesty.
