Seeing with our heart while looking through the lens. - Our world is renewed each dawn with possibly. For me this is true each time I pick up my camera. I express the foundation of my photography as "hope in humanity." My desire is to tell the visual story, about who we are, how we share, and how we care. From the celebrations and the challenges of our lives, we have a human connection that knows no borders and speaks all languages.
Humanity connects us all regardless of our extended differences be they created, contrived or desired. In our humanity there is our hope, the desire to be here for the next moment, the next sunrise, the next time when we connect with anyone and everyone. Photographs help create and persserve those connections.
