ABOUT

(Photo credit: T. Strand)

For my 15th birthday, my father surprised me with a playful (lime green!) Konica Pop.  And so begun my obsession with capturing images. Since, I have been hunting moments with a Minolta X-500, an Olympus Stylus 1s, a Diana F+, a Polaroid  Sun660, iPhones, a Honeywell Rolleiflex and finally, my current camera, a Canon EOS 6D Mark II. The choice of my gear does matter, but not without a personal vision expressed through composition, lines, textures and colors. My latest work speaks of the conflicting feelings of joy and dread I feel when admiring our dying planet. I can't seem to escape  this sens of impending doom, but I can still admire our home while it still breathes.
