When I photograph an individual, I want to connect with her or his interior. I’m not looking for the outer coating.
I accept myself and realize that being an outsider is part of my strength.
When I flew away, I was on my own. And that was part of the lure. I left behind my daily life and I landed wherever I landed. The risks that I took led me into the most amazing experiences of my life and gave me freedom to photograph whatever attracted me.
