About the Artist
I realized early on that traveling is one of the most treasured experiences in ones life. It increases your knowledge, opens your mind and enriches your soul. Since the beginning of time, artists, musicians, writers and other cultural connoisseurs have roamed the globe finding inspiration in the beautiful landscapes and intriguing people and cultures of lands near and far. Photography is my passport to meeting new people, learning new cultures and customs, understanding history and documenting some of the most fascinating people and places in the world.
My photographs in Cuba are a great example of this. Traveling to Cuba and photographing the Ballerina, the Boxer and the gentleman in his home sitting in his bedroom reading, has really opened my eyes. And it has reaffirmed for me that doing something you love everyday is more important than money. Having a passion for something and pursuing that passion is something I see in many of the subjects, now friends, that I photograph in Cuba. They may not have much but they are thankful for what they do have and they find the most joy in doing something that they love.
I always say that my ultimate goal in my photography is to document, through pictures, the truest, most authentic essence of the people I’ve encountered or to share my profound enchantment with the places I’ve visited.
