My photographs explore the emotional responses evoked by various religious symbols, especially in connection with the human body. I employ religious objects as styling elements in nude photography, reshaping their original purpose to challenge the unspoken rules and biases that have shaped religious dogma and human behavior.
From the blue water on Diani beach to the lions and wildebeest of the Maasai Mara, from the view of the snow covered slopes of Mt.

This is a diary of his travels, encounters and experiences, fully shot, edited and post produced on the iPhone.
