My photography projects document and reflect on the beauty of the simple things in life. It is a chosen moment of extraordinary taken from the ordinary. I create visual essays out of mundane beauty, capturing poetic moments in every-day objects and situations.Kitchen Poetry is a collection of photographs taken in my kitchen. Sometimes while making breakfast, I find an orange’s skin so beautiful, or the leftovers on a plate so perfectly displayed, that I have the impulse to capture the moment. It can also happen during other mundane tasks such as washing the vegetables, or the simple gesture of boiling an egg. I want to convey the message that beauty is everywhere and for anyone to see. Beauty in simplicity and authenticity.
