Stolen Moments I Press Release
On a quiet winter night, I looked out a window. I could see a building far away, the windows were illuminated, and I could vaguely make out people inside their apartments.

After months of continuous observation in different parts of the city, I collected hundreds of photographs of strange, comical, and often haunting moments.
At times, I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of human nature when it was not guarded, not self-conscious, and completely uninhibited. This provided me with a stage where it was possible to observe myself in the most secret and vulnerable moments of others.
