Director Bio

What is more real, more relatable to people than people themselves?

My work relies on the simple focus of people. Human nature in its most natural form. The intention of my consideration for the spoken word and human art is to pull the viewer out of reality, for just a second, into a place of serene realisation.

The narrated content speaks of a deeper meaning, poetic and longing.

Stories accompanied by a time-eclectic look.

Photographer Bio

I document people, value everyday objects, and create strange frames with architectural forms.

Real situations with natural light.

I tend to center the most important object in my story, and balance the composition with horizontal lines.

In my photos, warm tones predominate.

I shoot on Kodak Portra film and respect the contrast and colors it provides.

I'm in love with the feeling ‘one out of thirty-six’, each shot is valuable.

My ultimate goal is to create images that take us on a journey, for an instant we live that beautiful place.
