Every photographer has a story of how they came to pick up a camera and for many of us there is a family connection. More than ten years ago I inherited my father’s rather modest collection of cameras and not knowing what to do with it, the cameras sat in boxes until I decided they had to go. Little did I know that my efforts to understand the value of the collection would lead me to becoming a photographer myself.
Today I am exploring the world with my own camera, and a few of my father’s.
For me, learning to see is more than just recognizing great compositions and knowing how to photograph them well. I believe compelling images come from the heart and whatever we feel will be reflected in the images we make. My photographic journey is about making sense of the world by asking questions and seeking answers even if there seem to be none. It is why I want to share what I see and how I say it.
