Artist Statement:
“Photography lends itself to reproduction, and reproduction lends itself to dissemination. And as an artist, I think my main project is to educate people...I think an artist has two roles, to celebrate the beauty of life and to correct chaos in the world. He or she can play either or both. I guess I alternate."
