A portrait has the power to change. I believe one of the most important recipients of that change can be the subject of the portrait themselves. To be able to take someone out of their own perspective and, if but for a moment, see themselves or their family through a different set of eyes. Eyes that can see their inherent beauty, a moment of joy, or a love shared amongst family. A mirror only shows us what we already think we see, but a photograph can take us out of ourselves and show us a whole new perspective.
Currently based in Bangkok, Thailand, I am embarking on a new project, The Hope Motif, with a vision to capture and share the beauty and value of people and their stories in photographs and short films.
Some of my photographs and cinematography are available for license at Stocksy.
