Explanation: My work as a documentary photographer covers a range of subcultures which are sometimes viewed as controversial. I have no political axe to grind or agenda to push but rather am interested in photographically documenting unique and visually interesting groups of people. As would any documentarian, I may disagree with my subjects on various issues, but as one can see from my body of work, I am unafraid to photographically explore that which society might deem politically incorrect. As one who highly values freedom of speech and expression, I seek to portray the various groups documented as they express themselves, without reference to outside opinions or ideologies.
