“During the summer I was twelve, I asked my father about his analogue camera. He gave me two films so I could figure it out myself. Using his camera made me realize life becomes more interesting by capturing people and places surrounding me. It introduced me to a different dimension.
Photography allows me to immerse myself in other ways of life, it is a gateway to discover new parts of the world and different layers of societies. I’m intrigued by the mystery. This is why I love to connect to the person I photograph, so I can portray what I find inside. By going closer and creating an image of those moments, I believe I can illuminate what I see.”
