17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Pavement Prophecy

I use my time behind the lens to share a perspective rooted in my life experiences. I treat photography as both a technical and an artistic endeavor, using light to translate the energy that I feel. In 'Pavement Prophecy' I present images that combine my love for portraiture and urban scenery to explore the diverse energy and soul of the streets. I use harsh sunlight and shadows to create tension in the imagery while relying on soft lighting to highlight the confidence of my subject. I work to create portraits that carry emotional depth, hoping to provoke viewers to empathize with the people they see in my work.
