Connection is about love, collaboration and giving purpose to our lives. Our DNA has wired us to seek relationships. Deny anyone contact and it’s the surest way to destroy them. It is the genius of nature’s nectar—her design to ensure the survival of our species. My connection with others often occurs when I take their portraits. I photograph people to celebrate them as pieces of art. My camera gives me access to a unique intimacy. An effective portrait is a mover of emotions that brings us closer and I’m honored to be able to contribute to that.
