An artist I look up to once wrote about me, “He has an uncanny eye for capturing people in a way that is profoundly affecting - he somehow gets their stories, their movement, their faults and glories all crammed into a single shot. […] At just 22, he has the understated grace of a seasoned photographer, hanging back, unnoticed, getting all the real shots without disrupting the scene.”
At the time, this meant a great deal to me simply because of its author, but it didn’t occur to me till I spent a year photographing life on a farm that he described the thesis of my work as a documentarian. I am deeply passionate about capturing the subtle intricacies of what make us all human. The faults and the glories.
