These photographs were taken before Covid-19. With the pandemic, people mask up and hide their faces and feelings. I was able to capture just the right moment when they were at ease and not self conscious. A photograph is the pause button on that particular moment in life. I fill up the frame with an emotional observation.
Travel was so easy then and my camera was always at hand whereever I happened to be. The images reveal just how much people have in common. Be it Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, Korea, or France. I hope these challenging times may soon end and we can look forward to seeing happy faces again.
