With my artistic practice, I explore themes of home, family, identity, aging, love, and relationships. Working mostly in color I meet my subjects in the environment where they are most comfortable, usually the home, in order to tell their stories with authenticity and compassion. At times, I use a lighter touch, occasionally injecting humor, to express intimate feelings about the person being photographed, especially if it’s someone close to me. I am influenced by literary fiction in terms of character development and place description, and I endeavor to create images that touch on human emotions that are recognizable and familiar. I use two cameras: a Canon DSLR with mainly a 35mm lens, and a Leica Q.
