Don't shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like. - Edgar Alan Harvey -
Welcome to my world where time stands beautifully still in stolen moments of lost and forgotten treasures through photography.
You are here either because I sent you here, you asked to be here or accidentally found yourself here. Whichever it is, I hope you find yourself lost, the way I do, in a secret realm that is largely unseen, overlooked and simply spellbinding. I hope to bring your attention to ordinary miracles, the little things, the diamonds underneath the souls of your feet, the simple beauty of life that unfolds quietly, majestically and as naturally as what air is to your lungs. When you leave here and click that little cross on your browser tab, I hope that even if only for a moment, you feel a little more brushed with appreciation for what you have experienced here because gratitude gives you more of what you thought you never had. That for one sweet moment, you were transported by what magic often leaves us feeling; BREATHLESS. That you go with a feeling of having your eyes and heart slightly widened by the depictions of my soul.
What does Meraki mean? (n.) The soul, creativity or love put into something, the essence of yourself that is put into your work. "This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe what happens when you leave a piece of yourself (your soul, creativity, or love) in your work. When you love doing something, anything, so much that you put something of yourself into it".
When I discovered this word it collided hard with my soul because that is exactly what happens when I'm pushing the button that freezes little moments that will never, ever pass in exactly the same way again. I imprint my heart, soul and love into my images which are created with meraki.
How grateful I am for the gift of sight...for without it I don't think I would ever know how much happy one human could hold or capture in the joy that is photography.
Welcome to my little haven, my place of peace, passion, creativity and love. A deeply personal space. The space where I feel univocally at home.
