I love the idea of elsewhere. There’s nothing more exciting than to arrive in a new place and go exploring with a camera. 
The type of work I pursue relies on serendipity and chance encounters.
“The world reveals itself to those who travel on foot” - Werner Herzog
For the past decade I’ve worked in documentary film as a director of photography and video editor. I am a cinematographer exploring photography after hours.  
“We are not able to look at what is in front of us, unless it's inside a frame” - Abbas Kiarostami
With my personal work I choose to adhere to the traditional rules of photography and only use raw image processing tools such as those available in a darkroom.  
Photography can elevate and manipulate experience and memory, and I love the idea of the lifelong pursuit.  
Thank you!
