I believe that an image is the sum of a collaboration. The best are born from an intimate understanding of context, not only within the image's narrative, but also of the hands involved in it's creation, it's relevance in time and place, and finally within the personal perspective of the audience. I want to create stories that are bold and graphic, and I believe that it is our responsibility as visual artists to challenge an audience's understanding of how a story is told through an image.
