"The necessity to make art comes from a desire to connect beyond oneself, it's not art alone that reminds us of what it means to be human, it's artists who take us away, and then bring us home."

Anchored in a profound commitment to unearthing the visual imperative, this monograph is a celebration of lens-based mastery and socio-cultural inquiry.
