Everything changed the moment I realized I have a story. Suddenly it all mattered. From the tragic loss I experienced at a young age in my family to receiving a scholarship to explore the world. From almost dying in a bus crash in Bolivia to moving to Berlin creating my dream job doing what I love. From taking the first and last photo of stillborn babies to celebrating lives well lived at 90 years old. The highs and lows and moments between playing its part in the greatest adventure: my journey of becoming.
How do you make a difference in the world? One story at a time.
7.6 billion people – 7.6 billion different stories
Yet we are all searching for the same: meaning. We are drawn to stories of purpose and significance. In fact, we will never create anything more powerful or significant than our life (story). We might think other people’s stories are greater than our own, but there is something unique only you can bring / add / contribute to this world to make a difference.
I’ve always been about stories. Not intentionally documenting what I saw around me, asking strangers where they’re coming from and where they’re going. Photography has become a key / door into people’s lives, to celebrate them for who they are. Carlos, a painter in Buenos Aires without hands, painting with his mouth or Shoani in India with the dream to become a teacher. I still hear them laughing when I look at their portraits. Seeing them live their story changed me, leaving me with a bigger heart and deeper connection and wondering: What if your story is a gift for others?
That’s why I would love to help you tell your story.
