Everything that could possible happen between people happens during photography. It’s cool to see life thru a lens and play out on that stage over and over again. For me photography is a chance to peek in the human condition a little bit and see what makes people human and too see what makes them tick. It could be love, hate, stress, fear or anything for that matter but I have seen it through photography. I love it and I have to see that real burn out. If I saw photography as a job then I would get burnt out. I love to see a different way on how to understand people and even the relationships between people. Seeing so much beauty, emotion and action in photography made me open my eyes. Every day and ever place I walk I see something I can capture with a camera. I am always making notes and creating my own Rolodex of ideas. When I photograph, I document life happening before my eyes. It’s dynamic, fluid, and I must react to what’s happening before me to capture its essence. I love the problem solving and the hunt that comes along with photography.
Khost, AFG, Afghanistan. Mohammad, one of the more angry joung Pashtu fighters. He was just over 24, but had been with various commanders as long as he could think.They had been his family after the Russians killed his parents and now he was manning a survailance post in the mountains just west of Khost. Being a peaceful place during daytime, the nights proved different. New weapons, such as rifles, ammunition and land mines, are being transported over these remote passes and this is also the route the Taliban and their supporters take to reinsurge into Afghanistan. More than once there are severe fire-fights at night.
