Biography:


For me, Documentary and Photography is a way to express color in all its beauty. It is also a way for me to experiment with the range of possibilities allowed through my choice of materials. My Documentaries and photography is not an excuse to present overly-complex theories or ideas. This may not be the popular view, but to me, formal qualities don't need some form of conceptual justification to back them up I draw inspiration from concepts like Ordered Complexity and Emergence, where things build up from a simple base structure by following a set of predetermined rules, and self-organize as they go. I translate this into photography by building off of the random, using a predetermined technique and range of colors.
