Artist StatementPhotography is a medium in which I feel as though I am able connect with others by expressing my thoughts visually. It helps me understand the complexities of my community, identity and culture by forcing me to have the patience to exist within a space and be present. Influenced by history, current events, and society, I like to conduct interviews, surveys, or participate in collaborations in order to see how the work can extend beyond my personal experience, and become a shared experience. Whether working independently or collaboratively, the relationships I develop with others helps me to create work that will initiate dialog, spark emotion, and hopefully inspire.
