I have been deeply fascinated by the portrait paradox that exists in modern black and white portraits - the unique fusion of modernity and classicism. Each portrait transcends the constraints of time, creating a bridge between the rich history of classic black and white portraiture and the advancements of modern photography. By stripping away the cacophony of hues, there is a profound purity in the monochromatic world where light, shadow, and contrast unite to unveil the subject's inner vulnerability and strength. Contrary to the notion that black and white photography is antiquated, I find that it resonates with the human experience in a deeply powerful way, perhaps even more so in today's world, where we are inundated with digital manipulations and artificial perfection. By crafting portraits that possess both an eternal connection to the past as well as an undeniable contemporaneity, a portrait paradox that continually inspires my creative endeavors.

Every day, I am inspired by the potential of others. Watching people become empowered to take control of their lives is an amazing experience. It starts with recognizing our own worth and exploring what's possible.

I believe it is an utmost priority to help people see how incredible they truly are. When people start to view themselves with confidence and high esteem, they can take on anything.
