Behind every pair of eyes is a mind filled with memories and thoughts belonging to a life unknown. Alike in our estrangement, as individuals we are all unique and seldom display the truths we possess inside. It is my belief that we are each apart of something larger and are destined to teach one another through our experiences. This unyielding desire to connect draws me to photograph people and their rituals; exploring relationships, intimacy, and the many facets of our individual identities. Only through awareness and compassion can we grow to see the beauty in our surroundings, and feel the power and strength of every story.
