I’ve always had a passion for the cinema, and as such, my perspective has typically favored the cinematic. I like to think of my image creation process as similar to the structure of jazz music- frequently spontaneous, though wholly intentional. I’m an observer behind the lens. My images are honest yet cinematic; “fine art photojournalism” is my preferred term.
The foundations of my visual storytelling are reflection and perspective. My work is the proverbial mirror held for all of us to catch glimpses of ourselves in moments of naked humanity. – Durado Brooks
