Music can take you on a journey, make you laugh, cry and touch the deepest part of your soul. So can a photograph. I come to photography as a musician, attracted to visual narratives that define an unsuspected beauty in a specific place in time. I am a champion of the overlooked, and see my photography as a way to research, create change and inject some beauty into the world.

Beautiful Woman at the Beach
I noticed this woman as I was walking up from the shore the other night. She was sitting, by herself, staring at the ocean and watching the sunset. I asked her if I could take her photograph and at first she couldn't understand me, she spoke Russian. Then she said, "I'm not beautiful." I told her that she is beautiful and that's why I wanted to take her photograph...because that was the truth. I hope that if and when I am her age, that I look as beautiful as her and that I go to the beach to appreciate the sun setting over the ocean.
