Some say that my camera is nearly an extension of my body. Personally, I believe they’re right. It all started over a decade ago when I found a shoebox filled with old family photos hidden deep within my attic. It was through these photos that I began to discover untold stories of my family’s history, secret loved ones, and a war torn past. I stepped away from this emotional, yet powerful experience with a sense of humbleness and strong interest to photograph the beauty in everyday life.
