Scenes of Spirituality from Around the World
Photography allows me to explore and express both the subtle and the beautiful characteristics in life: peace, freedom, faith, love and longing, and silence. Much of these are constantly manifesting in us, but are only expressed very briefly and often with little attention. Therefore, to be able to capture these characteristics in people in a still image, to afford the ability to reflect upon them, is central to me and my work.
