Good photography creates stories that'll showcase what's invisible through what is visible. In a time when the “appearance of substance” is customarily valued higher than actual substance, the value of images can become powerful tools of perception. However, “appearance without substance” is as evanescent as a gentle whisper in the wind. So the challenge of creating good photography is capturing imagery that connects the subjects' substance with its appearance. I aspire to create good photography to inspire roots from what exists within the soul to what is visible to the eye.
