It’s been there all along – my hankering to capture the fragility of fleeting, almost imperceptible moments. No matter what I’m doing I see things from the corner of my eye that I don’t want to let pass.

Strays is a group of images based on these in-between moments. They are shards of the quotidian that might have gotten lost along the way. Shooting these images forces me to stop, surrender to the moment and focus on a few details I had barely registered.

Often I don’t know what attracted me to these banal objects and common places. Editing the images gives me a chance to unravel the mystery. I work with each photograph and encourage it to become a small phrase upon which reminiscence and memory can be built.
