When a person views my images, I want them to just be able to feel the emotions resonating from my work instead of words to describe the photograph. My work is unique and undeniably distinct because I am me, and I am the only me. Many have no idea what they want to do with their life and live through the monotonous tribulations of daily existence, and I want people to at least pick up their phone to try and experiment with photography to see if they love it as much as I do. Finding a passion or love for anything is as valuable as striking gold.
Additionally, I want to use my camera as a tool to help other people understand what it is like to live in another person’s shoes. I want people to feel what it is like to go explore the mountains, work day in and day out to get a scholarship to be the first in your family to go to college, fight against oppression, or even wake up early daily to train for the glory of winning a championship. The greatest photographers have always used their camera uncover emotions hidden behind the veil, and that is what I seek to do.
