"All photographers are artists, but I also take pride in being an artisan. An artisan is someone who skillfully and meticulously creates by hand, never mass-producing their work.
My desire as an artisan is to make photos that are full of life and express beauty in an honest and organic nature. Tools such as film photography allow me to slow down and turn an eye to detail in order to document moments that are meaningful.
For this reason, I am drawn to the disappearing value of the tangible. I advocate for printed art, as photos are meant to live not just on hard drives but in printed form, where you can touch and feel the moments captured."
