STATEMENT

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.
