I have an innate love of stories. And this is the reason what drew me to photography. I believe storytelling matters—it heals and teaches; it inspires and resolves; it enchants us as well as enlightens us. Since then, this has been a core pillar of my career as a photographer.
The aim of these projects is to reveal universal truths about humanity by sharing real stories of human struggles and their eventual triumph. Through these meaningful stories we see how very different people share the same life experiences and how human nature can transcend culture.
I have always been described as a people person. It's served me well throughout my career as a photographer and as a former advertising Creative Director. This portrait project is a result of my curiosity and innate interest in people— the smile that shines when we laugh; the eyes that light up when we share our stories; the emotion that sparks when we see our lives as a delightful quest to discover. These, amongst other things, maintain my interest and the time spent with these phenomenal people meaningful.
