They say sometimes it takes a lifetime to find one's true calling. And I found mine just a few years ago.
Photography for me is like unveiling a story. It is like stripping the soul bare to be understood by one self and by others. I am fascinated by the human species, full of emotions, turmoil, confusion, tension and mystery.
Through photography I wish to reach out to people, awaken their senses, their supressed emotions, shake them into existence, open their eyes to the buried and hidden, all that surrounds them, affecting them directly or indirectly.
Life is a journey of self discovery and self realisation thus understanding one’s place in this world.
