    Working mainly in the field of Street and Documentary photography, I like to capture the everyday moments and emotions of people in their environment and to tell stories that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. A lot of my work explores the human sub-cultures and societies that are belittled and highlights the ingenious qualities they have. I consider my work to be a visual representation of the connections between people, places, and emotions.
