I guess I’ve been in love with light and shadow from as far back as I can remember. Lately, I have found myself drawn to creating images that capture mood through light and texture. I always want the viewer to form an emotional connection when they see my work. I am inspired by the works of many great photographers like Gordon Parks, Robert Frank, Fan Hoe and Leonard Freed.
