I love to explore the world with my camera. Initially most of my work happened in the urban environment. I still consider myself a “street photographer”, though now I find photographs anywhere. It is always a process of discovery, graced by possibility and good fortune. My way of seeing sometimes tends towards the unexpected and the surreal in the ordinary, and relies strongly on composition and enigmatic juxtaposition. Often my pictures play with illusion, deception and imagination. I would like the viewer to see and experience the surprise and ambiguity of everyday life.
