"This lens exposes injustice."
I want people to wonder what their life is like, what they've been through, their dreams, their fears. What makes them laugh? What makes them cry? I want the viewer to really be able to put themselves in the shoes of whoever's in that photo. I want them to feel empathy.”
“It's my job to tell someone else's story for them in the most authentic and beautiful way that I can. I need these images, these stories to demand to be looked at. I believe we all have this obligation to help one another. It's our responsibility. It's compassion and empathy, and it's really beautiful.”
“My hope is that someone's going to see these photos and it's going to force them to care, which is forcing them to have empathy and look at someone else and be like, Oh my God, how do I look away from this?”
“I focus on portraits in the same way that I approach fashion work. I'm looking at color, I'm looking at lighting, I'm wanting all of my subjects to look the absolute best that they can. But instead of telling my own stories, I'm getting to document the stories of others. It's this obligation that I feel I have to do, and I absolutely love it.”
This lens is my love story.
Anniversary trip to Negril, Jamaica
This lens embraces the weird.
This is Gourdon, and he's just one of the many funny faces captured by my faithful camera. I treasure these moments that allow me to be creative and let the weirdness out to play.
This lens captures what we cannot see.
I love taking long exposures because my lens can capture more than I can't see with my bare eyes. It collects all the light that's there and creates this beautiful image.
