About my work

I use photography, and the portrait in particular, as an expressive tool and medium to investigate emotional dynamics. When making a portrait, you are looking at and describing the other. But, at the same time, you are looking inside yourself too. There’s a moment in portrait photography when the subject and the photographer, each with their own life experiences, complete themselves. Later, observers will add their life experiences too. The charm of a meeting point between these three elements pushes me forward in my research.
