"I am a humanist photographer focusing on documentary and composite or mixed media work. I tend to use the photograph of the ordinary man or woman, often the fisher or market vendor, as a symbol of an island class. I want to convey empathy, attention, consideration. I sometimes add to that reality by distorting and exaggerating aspects of their lives or emphasize obstacles that stand in their way."
