Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.

China, 2018 

The picture of contentment. It always amazes me how people can get lost in their thoughts regardless of the environment. There were lots of squeals and happy sounds of laughter happening here.
