"For me, emotion is the most important element of creativity in my art. Photography is more than just a graphical representation of an object or place; a well-crafted photograph needs to tell a story, stimulate the emotions, create intrigue or elicit some reaction. Photography is more than an enjoyable pastime - it transcends the daily grind, it helps me live life."
