I started photographing in high school and for years, put my creative life on hold until 13 years ago when I began studying with Mary Ellen Mark in Oaxaca Mexico. I love photographing people and have learned that consistancy and trust is where I can explore the human condition and go beyond the photograph into their soul. I have been returning year after year to the same place with the same people.I strive to make sense visually and trust that the poetry will follow. My shooting is very basic, C41 film, natural light and an all manual Leica. These images are seen though a camera without manipulation in the darkroom or computer.
I am quite inspired by your story. It seems that photography was not a profession for you but a passion that you cherished and you succeeded in your goal. However, photography is like sea. No one can comprehend it to the fullest. ::: http://www.qspray.com
