EMPHASIS IN PHOTOGRAPHY

I am a documentary photographer who has an interest in creating images of honest interpretations of people’s everyday life. My work explores human behavior and studies of everyday objects within the family and social environments. The idea of documenting the family and the mundane objects around me has given me an opportunity to look back on my upbringing.

I have realized that our habits and the objects we place in our home are reflections of who we are. Having the ability to use my digital camera for quick snapshots, I jump into several situations that are spontaneously happening around me. This tactic comes from being influenced by Henri Cartier-Bresson’s Decisive Moment concept and Sophie Calle for the way she documents people and objects in a voyeuristic way. I also inspired by personal growth books to understand why human beings act and show different emotions towards various kinds of people.

BFA THESIS PROJECT

For the BFA Show, my intention was to produce a monochromatic series of photographs that through a narrative explore the visible boundaries between the public and private life in a family environment.
