Why Photography...

Photography has been an ongoing, nagging, sometimes annoying passion that I can't seem to shake off.  No matter what I do, it's always there, in the back of my head.  That little voice telling me "That's a cool photo" when I see something that catches my attention.  Often this voice manifests itself either verbally or swiftly through the click of my shutter.  For the last 4 months I've decided to carry a camera with me everywhere... and i mean everywhere... and it has seriously been a blessing.  Needless to say I'm often encountered with the quizzical look on people's faces as to why I have a camera on me, but I shrug it away and go on with my purpose.  I want to capture the world, my world to be exact.  And of course this is the notion that every street or documentary photographer carries, but to me, it has become my mission.  Every single human on this planet lives a unique life and leaves a unique imprint and I want people to see, through my art, what my imprint was.  Because ultimately, when all is said and done and I no longer remain, my images will be a peek into this crazy whirlpool of emotions and actions that we call life.
