"For me photography is to place head, heart and eye along the same line of sight. It is a way of life."

.: Henri Cartier-Bresson :.
My love affair with photography began at age 14 with my parents’ digital point-and-shoot camera.
There was something irresistible about capturing moments. I saw it as an amazing way to preserve a living, breathing blink of time. Through photography I can appreciate beautiful details and intricacies of everyday magical moments and capture little subtleties, quiet beauty, cultural quirks, and breathtaking moments. To me, taking photos represents the art of appreciative observation.  

But most importantly, photography holds a mirror to humanity and shows us what’s real and true. And I think that’s beautiful.
