I have had a passion for travel and photography for as long as I can remember. They went hand in hand because I wanted to document where I was and create the image that could make me remember how I felt in that moment. I vividly recall fellow travelers commenting "Why is everyone pointing their cameras in that direction and you are the only person focusing in the opposite one?" My perspective has always been unique.
To me, a successful photo is one that can stand on its own. It tells a story. It evokes emotion. I have always had a penchant for black and white photography. As Ted Grant so aptly said, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!"
"[She] isn't afraid to engage directly with her subjects, which brings the viewer into a perspective of being a participant in the moment rather than a passive observer."
