“You ask too many questions!”
An expression I heard all too often when I was a child. My curiosity and eagerness to absorb the world around me seemed to annoy the adults in my life. Perhaps they were right, and I was indeed annoying. But the thing is that curiosity never left me, and still today I’m left with more questions than answers when I look around.
My camera has become the repository of the questions, riddles, and enigmas of my life. My photographs are an estuary where thoughts meet observations in the quest for answers. The city, the streets, and the people are my richest source of wisdom. Strangers’ stories enter through my lens and jump-start my neural network into overdrive.
Occasionally, I open the valve and release them back into the world to relieve the pressure they build in my mind.
