The final results are sometimes arresting, exuberant or even mournful, but that should be for the viewer to determine." Swav Jusis 2012

"Some see the world as black and white, others in shades of grey. To me the world is filed with sharp contrast and colors, depicting the joys, sorrows and blasts of emotion that make up life."
