I was given my first camera when I was 14 and still remember the thrill. For someone extremely shy, it was like being given a freedom of expression. I had always been fascinated by images of people, places, capturing them in my mind’s eye – but then they were gone. Now I could hold on to those images. The images themselves weren’t as important then as the fact that they were moments in time. It wasn’t until many years later, when I met legendary photographer Elliott Erwitt, that I started to really think about the powerful stories that images can relate.

I started to really look at people’s faces, explore the emotion in their eyes, their mouths, their hands, the stories they tell of the life that has been lived, their joys and sorrows, their adversities and their triumphs. Regardless of their age, every face tells a story and there are moments within that story that the essence of the person is revealed. That is what I try to capture.
