Commercial II

Commercial II

In times of pixel perfection, toy cameras, instant plastic effects and sugar coated photos, what interests me is the challenge to express the distinct nature of the subject. You won't see 'nice', 'beautiful' or 'happy' in my work; what we get is the sum of brief moments with characters from different realities - those of the subject, mine and ultimately yours (the viewer).
A rare privilege presented indeed.

Photography has to transcend description. It has to go beyond description to bring insight into the subject, or reveal the subject, not as it looks, but how does it feel?
