I like to take what appears to be mundane, normal, average and make it into something extraordinary, something beautiful, and something someone would notice. People have always fascinated me—I am constantly amazed by what they pass by—places that they fail to notice. I have always been a "people-watcher,” and photography is my way of documenting what I see. It is always the character that catches my eye—a man wearing a fedora and a strange expression or an old lady watching the world go by. Getting a good shot takes a remarkable amount of luck, but occasionally every element lines up: the character, the light, the setting. And when they do the result is magical.
