My work focuses on the metaphorical and the abstract. I like to take a more conceptual approach towards depicting something I feel passionate about – this year I created a series on human addiction to technology. I wanted to draw attention to the deterioration of human relationships at the hands of phones and computers by using irony and symbolism. I also worked on photographing landscapes from unique and dramatic angles to make them appear more abstract.
