- "Photographing nightlife culture since 2006, it pains me where we are today with festivals and parties being cancelled until the unforeseeable future. The lack of physical connection, the lack of community and all walks of life coming together to dance and enjoy music -- it's beyond a shame, an aspect of my life I took for granted as it was so ordinary for me. I look back on these photographs nostalgically lamenting a simpler time that I truly wonder if it will ever come back. "
