Mysteries & Rituals

My photographs are poems. Their meaning isn’t always immediately understood. They are open to interpretation. Under closer analysis themes start to emerge. Symbols form metaphors. If you live with them for awhile and let them roll over in your mind a bit the story takes shape. I document the habits, rituals and beliefs that people rely on. They are simple stories, exploring reoccurring patterns in our human existence. [Official Website]
