"Visually and narratively, I am drawn to stories about people in places. I am interested in human interaction and behavior (specifically in regards to communication). – Most of my ideas start out as images or simple moments without a larger narrative. The process of establishing the narrative is, for me, both challenging and rewarding. I enjoy the process of fleshing out a story and finding its footing, as well as gathering together the right people to tell that story." - A.J. Ogilvie
