“My mission is to capture the vitality of human experience and to present it on paper in a visually compelling manner. As I photographer I work with daily life, ritual and celebration within which I look for moments of insight or higher meaning. I seek to create iconic images that are immediately recognizable as illustrating an idea, a place, or event.”
