About ‘Twenty Seventeen‘:
My approach to photography is guided my intuition, rather than preconception. The camera gives me a way of looking at the every day in a more conscious light and a way of surfacing thoughts and feelings that are otherwise difficult to access and express.
My photography is about subtraction. I approach it with a simple process – focusing on the smaller details, the beauty of the little things. I love light and color.
In a time where the centre of the frames is often the self , this series captures seemingly mundane, fleeting seconds, which to me are the most remarkable. These beautiful moments, too often disregarded, are what need to be immortalized.
