It is said that most of us will never write a great novel, but that all of us will live one. It is for this reason that I photograph, to capture the ever-changing and infinitely unique pages of the novel of my life. We exist through these novel and are similarly characters in the novels of the lives of others. I photograph this existence and bear witness to life.
