"Nearly almost all of my photography is unplanned. It unfolds in the moment, often on what I like to call “photo excursions”. This series of photographs is from a walk through Wissashickon Park, in Philadelphia, USA.

I am attracted most to shadows when looking through the lens. I enjoy the contrasts, and this roll of film in particular was perhaps the highest key light I’ve ever encountered with human subjects. Through light, I try to find an interesting way to tell a story. Capturing movement in a subtle way is my goal, and also my biggest challenge."
