I have been involved with photography since I was a young kid because I was born into a family of artists, several of which are photographers. I made a career in photography within the fashion and advertising industry and was very active for over 25 years. I no longer pursue this type of commercial photography and switched to documentary and fine art.
I approach photography in different ways which always intertwine themselves. It is a mix of the decisive moment, the instant in question (an entity all by itself), the narrative or what is shown or
what the picture is about (not necessarily shown), and the never ending voyage of going within myself thru photography.
I fully appreciate the celebration of photography (as we know it), now in it’s golden age, and the effort of making it always more democratic and available. Photography related events really help
educate the general non-photo public, and making possible for us photographers to connect not only with an audience, but with our own peers as well.
