FINAL SHOW! As a street photographer, I travel throughout the city, shooting what catches my eye at the moment, without a larger plan in place. It's only later on (months or years) that I may see themes in my work that could be the basis for a series. What inspired me to shoot this work ended up being the theme itself. I love this city, its endless vibrancy, and polyrhythms. Like good jazz music, or hearty stew, its the perfect mixture of "this and that." Of course, it's the people here that bring those descriptions to life. I love finding everyday scenes and framing them so that the mix of people, expressions, and rhythms creates some kind of spark, thereby conveying the Úlan of this city.

She is attracted to ideas and stories that display our commonalities as people; she believes that, as human beings, we are much more alike than we are different. One of her greatest joys is to make candid photographs of people, in which a single frame can tell a multitude stories.
