“New places, new faces, new adventures. Traveling keeps people on their toes. The mind has a tendency to lean toward complacency, often resorting to the simplest manner of thinking in order to achieve that. As a result, we risk the danger of relying on stereotypes and blanket generalizations which we apply to other cultures as a way of trying to understand them. Travel takes you out of your comfort zone and puts you in situations where you’re forced to adapt to other customs and habits and as a result, a greater understanding of other cultures is often a result. Putting yourself in other cultures also introduces you to other languages, foods and sensations which do their part to make your life that much richer.
I love photographing people. I love landscapes and wildlife photography but I have a particular interest in candid shots of people in their day to day lives. It gives a more honest look at the human race”
