“Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again” Henri Cartier-Bresson
When I turned 18, I started documenting everything obsessively (primarily in a journal): the people I’d met, the films I’d seen, the insignificant minutiae of life. It was only when I travelled extensively that I became frustrated at how I’d forget details, how moments eluded me, how I was unable to capture them adequately on paper, unable to document people I’d seen, unable to save memories. Which is why I took up photography. I am especially drawn to portraits because there is something fleeting and unpredictable about them, and capturing transient moments and emotions can be exhilarating.
