I’ve always loved pictures, especially pictures of people. Baseball cards were my first obsession. Then came album covers and music magazines. A little later, I discovered documentary photography, but my interest still came from the same place – a deep curiosity about other people and a desire to share something of their experience. This desire remains the driving force behind my work as a photographer.
I always find myself going back to images that somehow convey a vital human energy. Some pictures just feel alive in a way that others don’t. I’ve been trying for a long time to crack the code on where this energy comes from. The one thing I’m pretty sure of is that it has more to do with the people being photographed than it does with the photographer. As I’ve understood this more clearly, my approach has evolved. What turns me on about photography is simply sharing a moment with the people I’m photographing, and trying to create a space in which they feel comfortable letting themselves be seen.
