The lens creates a different story than the one from the eye. It tells not just one, but multiple stories. My passion is through the lens, and my visual creativity has allowed me to share narratives that mean a great deal to me.
Photography is powerful, yet it is weak in a photographic world. In other words, everyone has a camera, and everyone is documenting everything. This is a problem for the concept of storytelling through visuals. The powerful narratives get lost in all the nonsense that people have to offer. Everyone believes they are a photographer or a journalist because they have a smartphone, a camera, and social media.
I am a photographer and a creator. I believe every photo tells a story, but does that mean it is powerful? No, there are only certain photos that can change the world. My goal is to create one of those photos.
