My mission is to capture and share the gentle beauty of those beings who inhabit the space nearby, so nearby that they almost go unnoticed in the chaos of urban living. I especially find that the Moon, whose ever-changing shape journeys through the sky, to touch a deep chord in my soul. With my pictures, I hope to inspire other urban dwellers to re-weave their relationship with these beings, to look at them with different eyes, and to find a new sense of place where we spend most of our lives.
