Being born into a family of six brothers and sisters, you quickly learn how to live and be happy with lot's of different people and personalities. You have to, it's a survival technique. I've lived in over crowded hostel bunks, the backs of cars, and on plenty of carpet spaces thanks to the kindness of old and new friends. I get to know these people with a lens in front of my eye. When someone invites you into their home, you get to make a connection with them. I feel like my camera lets me get even closer. You don't get to just take someone's picture, they really have to give it to you. Otherwise, it's just another snapshot. Thankfully there are still many new places to visit and people to meet and I'll always have my camera ready for the next adventure.
