Your Bio

When George Eliot said "It is never too late to be what you might have been," she may have very well described the path I took to become a photographer. I changed my passion for words to images.

I am mainly a self-taught photographer.

I embrace the Proustian concept of memory. Photography enables me to capture a transient moment the way I originally perceive it, and manipulating the image afterwards allows me to enhance it as I envisage it. My goal is that my images--especially the heightened ones--captivate an illusory moment that a viewer will behold as her own memory.
