1. Firstly congratulations on being selected as one of the finalists for the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards (Professional Category)! I know this is only recent but how incredible has this selection been for you?
I am terrible with translating my thoughts into a comprehensive sentence. Documentary photographing is a way for me to express the world around me. To have my work recognised on such a level is an awesome personal justification that how I feel and see the world is coming across in the image. The Sony World Photography Awards have given my work an incredible amount of exposure, far greater then I could have imagined or done on my own.
