My work reimagines society’s murmurs as collective memory. I view the camera and edit as a current capable of relaying cultural existence. I want this connection between culture and aesthetics to result in image-making that feels as distinct as our fingerprints. I am interested in films that subvert traditions to more accurately depict the nuance in our experiences.
