I take photos as an expression of my love for a moment.
Part of that is aesthetic, too.
It's the moment in its totality that captures me and provokes me to somehow try to capture it back. A reciprocation; of my wonder, my gratitude, my immense and sincere affection.
It's kind of cool to think about the people in my photographs as subjects. It's a question of what is my relationship to the subject that asks me to describe my relationship with those people outside the terms of whatever story we have together. What is it about the people around me – and sometimes it's people I know, and sometimes it's strangers, and sometimes it's somewhere in between – that captivates me with such tremendous love and delight?
