As a photographer, I strive to find the view of the world that I feel needs to be shown. We all see things differently, but I believe there is a common thread that links empathy, compassion, wonder and joy.
I think that thread can be exposed with a photo, a moment of clarity that is universal. It can be a landscape or a portrait or a performance. The subject isn't as important as the ability of the image to evoke a shared emotion.
