“Just like the title, these collections of photographs exude the beauty of the people from different regions of the world. In my travels, I experienced the joy and beauty of life. I have always been interested in capturing the innocence, purity and realism of the people I come into contact with. As you will see in these photographs, the narratives are similar yet different. Within each culture, beauty emerges and to me it always looks the same. I did not find beauty but it found me. All I did was photograph, they brought the joy and beauty to me. I am grateful for all who allowed me to share their beauty with the world. Photographing people from different walks of life was a great way for me to represent beauty. My photography combines my passion for education, the arts and the natural forms of what is beautiful.”
