People have the power to change their own perceptions, whether it be their perception of themselves or that of the world around them. Since everything that we experience in our lives must pass through the filter of our perception, changing our perception essentially changes our reality. A simple flip of a switch in the mind can make purples more vivid, life more gratifying, and challenges less daunting than ever before. And the only thing that it really takes for that to happen is your choice; a simple choice to alter the way you see the world that in fact changes the world around you in a tangible way.
Photography is an alternate way of perceiving the world that I’ve embraced since I was 12 years old. Comparing the world as seen through a lens with how it is seen through the eyes or through our memories has allowed me to realize that nothing is definite, nothing is final, and nothing is seen the same way twice. By sharing with others these images and moments captured through a lens, I hope to provide people with the inspiration to believe that their own lives are not static and set in stone, but instead are dynamic stories with infinite possibilities at every moment.
Photographs are the dreams we have about the things we’ve seen.
