The last year or so I’ve really been enjoying working on street portraits. I always carry a camera whenever I step out and have been fortunate enough to meet some really interesting characters; family is always around so I’ve been documenting them also. Basically looking for trouble, the truth, and a fun time. Thanks very much for dropping by.

Know the white, but keep the black!
(Lao Zi – Dao de jing / 老子, 道德经)
A photographer (among other things) based in China, I consider photography as a path to explore the simple beauty of our daily lives.

I was born in the 1970s, which means I came of age in a crossover generation straddling both analogue and digital cultures. Many of my peers are now in the vanguard of Internet media, yet many of them, like myself, grew up writing school reports on typewriters and making mixed tapes for the girls we loved. A whole industry of iPhone applications has evolved to cater to the nostalgia of this lo-fi sensibility– that it is an artifice does not matter to many in our ironically inclined generation. I am not altogether Luddite, but I believe that regarding photography at least, authenticity is more valuable than convenience which is why I shoot analogue rather than digital.
