I’m not someone you’d call a people photographer, or a documentary photographer. At least I don’t think of myself that way, despite the images you see here. I’m too conscious of intruding and imposing myself on situations I have no business being in, and of transgressing invisible boundaries of personal space, all in the name of ‘getting the shot’. I believe in walking the fine line between respect and artistic licence while minimizing my impact on the scene as much as possible. Those are tough parameters to work with, especially when travelling in a foreign land, but when they work together, the results are very fulfilling. These moments of convergence, though rare, approximate the capture of Cartier-Bresson’s elusive ‘decisive moment’, a concept that resonates deeply for its implications of ephemerality in life and beauty.
