About


I am a photographer based between London and Manila.

Traveling is part of my identity. I have never felt a sense of complete belonging anywhere. I find meaning in documenting my constant desire to move, both physically and mentally.

When my work is at its most honest, you might begin to see shadows where there are none. Some artists pride themselves in knowing exactly how an image or a work of art was created. I am the opposite. I like it when I lose myself in the moment of creation.

The most profound moments of my journey are punctuated with the statement: "I don't know."
