Why Photography?

Why photography?

Every person has a story, if you listen well, you will find any story to be captivating and worth telling. The reason and the purpose of my images always starts with a story. Some times that story is shared over hours, days or even weeks with the subject, getting to know them, learning about them, watching them work, watching them live. Other times the story is briefly witnessed through a fleeting interaction with a person sometimes little more than eye contact. I am always looking for moments that don’t just tell the story, but powerfully highlights the depth of the story I’m creating. As a still photographer, my challenge is to tell that story through a single image. These are not my stories, these are the stories of others and I am privileged to have the opportunity to tell them.

Thanks @raissa_rkar for this photo of me in the DR Congo.
