I set out to capture daily life and interactions. These life events are sometimes celebratory but more often commonplace. They are made up of simple scenes, conversations and actions. Concentrating on layers, color, and gesture I aim to weave a specific action in with its backdrop. I am an observer, seeking to find and record a bit of today’s culture and community.

Life Happens in Color - A Street Photography Manifesto

In the chapters of this manifesto, I explain my approach to street photography as an informal genre of documentary photography and visual storytelling. I explain how I go about recognizing and then communicating the stories that I observe.  Within the descriptions of my images, I detail my process for identifying photographic opportunities, my thoughts while taking an image, and how I evaluate an image’s narrative strength during editing.
