These photographs were on exhibit in 2004 with the title “On Seeing” and the following artist’s statement:
Photography brings the camera and the subject intimately close, the photographer becoming the tool and voyeur of this intimate relationship. What I see is not what the camera records. While the camera is a tool for me, I am a tool for the camera. The result of this symbiotic relationship is my photography.
I photograph my environment. By looking at these photographs, you will see what the camera recorded and what I saw. In that sense, photography becomes a mirror to my past. Through this, I want to tell you the stories of the faces and places I have seen.
All this will work based On Seeing, mine, the camera’s, and yours.
