"People may ask us for the truth… But do they really want it? Take my advice… Don't show them everything… They never forgive you"
This quote, counter-inspired what I shoot, and why I shoot: I champion the truth nevertheless. A picture cannot exist unless it has something to say. Portraits and snapshots of daily life – from birth to funeral – give the subject of the photograph a means to express his or her reality, educating others and fighting stereotypes. There is a lot of injustice in the world and sometimes it is easy to be overwhelmed, however, we all have the responsibility to contribute to making the world a little bit better and a little bit more just. I hope to do so with images and the stories behind them.
