I was fortunate to grow up by the coast in East Africa, in a landscape that was always in flux and with constantly changing light. It sparked a lifelong curiosity in me for image making, and the different ways light, form, and texture can affect an image.
I start a photograph by asking what light best suits the subject. It is the light that shapes an image, and can be used as a tool to soften or highlight. Once I am away from set I blend these images together, building up a photograph layer by layer.
I like to refer to a quote from photographer Ansel Adams. “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” For me, a photograph is a series of parts, combined together to create a final image.
