While out making photographs, I spend a great deal of time trying to see things in a less literal way. I use this time to take all the variables and elements into consideration, and enter my practice from a sociological or anthropological perspective. My camera serves as a mirror, that demonstrates how the democratic nature of photography can be a vehicle for diverse perspectives to visualize social problems, spark dialogue, and transform assumptions. I have benefited from commercial photography practice, and gained a range of techniques, including in-camera processes such as polarization and graduated filters, shift, and tilt lenses, and in-computer techniques such as high dynamic range, exposure blending, and focus stacking, to produce images. When I try to understand photography as a way of expression, my understanding of the concept of photography transfers from the image itself to the level of language. I tend to work on several bodies of work at the same time, such as techniques, tools, themes, and aesthetics. I hope to explore the metaphors and relevance of photography in addition to the plane meaning.
My photographs are meant to be read and analyzed. Symbolism is abundant in them, for what makes an intricate story if not visuals that mean one thing but stand for another? In my creation, I combine life experience and visual research methods to explore the hidden meaning of images. I want my imagery to move beyond the realm of photography and instead mimic paintings and alternate styles of art. It is more like another form of language, providing a realistic measurement and explanation of the complex social life.
