I feel like I am in a trance, behind the camera, in front of such beauty. The possibility of capturing a moment that will forever be gone excites me. The ability to create, whether that is a photograph, a painting, or a garment is a pleasure like no other; to take a possibly unbearable and chaotic reality and pass it through a looking glass of some medium. The beauty of art is that there is a mystery to it. I am exploring photography to uncover beauty, the noticed and unnoticed.
I ask myself who or what inspired me to take this route. A single name does not pop up, but countless. I am inspired by Annie Leibovitz that orchestrated and documented beautiful moments in modern history through her camera. I am inspired by Andy Warhol, who was fascinated by the world and marked an era, who believed in greatness, therefore became it. I am inspired by Coco Chanel and her timeless designs, hard work, and elegance. I am inspired everyday by the people that I surround myself with and strangers that I pass by. I want to document the human condition as well as capture people’s talents and passions.
