“Cinematography nourishes all of my artistic needs: I have choreography with the camera movements and my subjects; I have painting with the lights; and I have sculpting by creating three-dimensions on a two-dimensional plane. Every time I pick up a camera and get ready to film, a new adventure starts. It’s a journey into the depths of someone’s life—a unique story that as it unfolds, dismantles barriers, opens doors and reveals truth. To capture this is an art, which feeds my passion for my work. I have shot documentaries and dramatic features for 20 years. I can’t wait to explore the nature of my next project.”
