I am not interested in the concept of ‘shooting’ pictures, I find this idea far too intrusive; I make images. My aesthetic curiosity is driven by the need to learn something new about a person or a culture. This desire keeps me exploring. I don’t consider myself a journalist or documentary photographer as I believe in a humanity that unites all people. Capturing this concept in an image is my ongoing challenge.
Next week I will return to the small village of Jatisura in West Java, Indonesia, to continue my photography project on the local rice farmers.
