Strong composition and an old school, traditional approach to the craft is what I seek, so a touch of dodge and burn does me. I’m not really interested in lazy clichés; the obsession with bokeh, a sunset, cute shots of flowers, people just walking down the street cellphone in hand. That’s too easy, too mundane. I strive to make images with an inquisitive narrative, maybe a moment of tension, uncertainty, ambiguity. My photographic heroes include Cartier-Bresson, Capa, Friedlander, Koudelka, McCullin, Gordon Parks, Parr, Mary Ellen Mark, Salgado, W. Eugene Smith, as well as James Nachtwey and Giles Duley’s more recent humanitarian and conflict work. A more comprehensive photostream here:
