The essence in pursuing the inherent perspective on ones’ intimate sustainment is profoundly challenging to me.

What is needed to perpetuate ones’ self reliance that is independent from expectations and compulsion seems to be the force compelling my images.
The recognized and universal threads of our own persona that seem to interconnect us to one another in our daily lives also have the ability to become void of this unity. This leads to the possibility of unique translation and interpretations.

Therefore, isn’t it attainable for an infinite number of such interpretations that are based on each of own unique characteristics? It’s with this idea in mind that I squeeze my images from.
