As a photojournalist, when I pick up a camera, the neurons in my brain fire into overdrive. Through images, I weave a story about my surroundings and the characters in them. Then I add words which swirl and swing with a backstory about what they're wearing, their posture, their life story - all tangling with human emotions.
There's a strong sense of place in my photographic and journalistic work. My role, as a photographer, is to give you personal glimpses into unlikely places and people; and as a writer, I say what the they're unable to.
