My street photography is about finding things to be fascinated about in the everyday. The world is constantly changing around us and if we don’t preserve the small parts of beauty that still exist they may be forgotten forever.

When I was younger I did a lot of skateboarding, as I got older the skateboard gradually became a camera. The philosophy of the two acts are very similar, both require taking something that most people pass by and making something interesting from it. In street photography you make a visual document, in skateboarding you have a physical experience.

I’m a humanist. I believe that every person on the planet is capable of being the basis for a beautiful work of art. I take photographs to understand myself better and to create something for future generations to cherish.
