As I travel around the world I occasionally receive the luxury of a still moment. It is in such moments that the camera can give way to the watercolor set. This same set has been my companion since China in 2009 and has been by my side ever since. I have learned to observe and capture that moment as quickly as I can. These sketches heighten the senses, making me notice all the little things I would miss from behind the camera lens. How people move through the spaces, their interactions, the tiny details in the facades, their rhythms and logic. There is so much behind the sketch, all the motion and life of that setting, these memories are anchored in these images. These become little stories that I can remember vividly every time I see the sketch made in that moment, in that place, in that setting.
