To start, I always found beauty in people and I love uniqueness. I always loved people watching and photography using live figures yet I found a lack of diversity in fashion and art photography. I would like to see a difference in the standard definition of beauty so, with my camera, I am hoping to capture that. HUMAN is also a platform to showcase my work and is my own curated presentation of my collection of work in hopes to be seen internationally.
How do you find your models?
I think more my models find me. Social media is a big part of it. Many models contact me to be a part of my projects and I worked with several agencies in New York.
What do you look for in a model?
Uniqueness. I love working with a wide range of models. Different race, freckles, short or very long hair, different skin tones and body types. I worked with models with albinism, vitiligo and identical twins both with alopecia. You can find beauty in all type of people. And that is what is important and that is what HUMAN is about.
Who as a photographer influences you?
My fascination with photography began in the 90’s once I discovered the masters like Herb Ritts, Bruce Weber, and Greg Gorman. I loved their classic clean style. I see their work as timeless. I try to create a body of work that I can see people hanging on their walls, even if it is a nude. I actually try to create a work of art and I feel those photographers, especially Ritts, accomplished that.
What message do you want to relay with your art?
With my work, I hope to show the beauty of the human body, what GOD has created and the beauty of who we are. I hope to open the minds of others in the definition of beauty and to help dissolve image and body shaming. Art is a great platform to deliver messages and bringing people together. Photography is my tool for making beautiful images of beautiful people.
