As a creative, photography to me, is the way I speak.
Through it I talk to people, listening to their stories, their joy, their hardship. Through the medium, I hope to create something that we can look back upon, like reference points to these people, their communities, their cultures and stories for others to see who they are.
And at the end of the day, all I want is to tell a story; for if I don't, then it won't be said.
