As a recipient of bachelor's degrees in both Anthropology and History, when I capture an Image, I am not trying to capture a visually pleasing moment. Instead, I am trying to capture something that is both visually stunning and significant, and what separates me from other photographers is my definition of significance. Because of my background in Anthropology and History, my photography searches for the significance of both the people who lived and are living the experience I am trying to capture.
