I started taking pictures as a kid. I was fascinated by every part of the process that was required to make images with a camera. From the very beginning the pictures were of people. Whether it's a street or editorial portrait, the images create a unique opportunity to really see another person up close. That's why I think portraiture is uniquely different from other forms of photography.
Lately, I've been traveling into different places and spending time there getting to know people, talking and making portraits. These portfolios are collections based on the locations and I hope they convey a bit about the universality of the people in each place.
