The Decisive Moment

Artist Statement:

Photography is more than a form of art- it is a way of seeing and being. It is a recognition that the world we live in, the simple act of existence, is art in and of itself. The term ‘decisive moment’, coined by street photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, refers to the moment when space and time align to produce a striking, unique, and ephemeral visual. My photography aims to make a fleeting reality visible, tangible, and immortal, capturing it before it is gone. This exhibit is a celebration of the unflinching rawness of candid photography.
