If these photographs have a purpose, it is this: they humanize.

I photograph to create a connection… to capture a pose, a thought, a glimpse, a moment. Whatever the situation, these images stir up unexpected feelings in me. Transcending time, my mind takes me back to the moments when a smile is pure inspiration, when eyes respond to a friendly gesture, when the laughter of children brings down boundaries, when a brilliant scene is heavenly communion. These are moments caught in stillness to stir movement within one’s inner depth.

 I hope each frame transports the viewer across not merely the distance between far-flung continents and geographies but across differences of class and culture.

Cyrus Kanga, an avid traveler, is based out of Redmond, WA. His photographic works fall between the aesthetic and documentary.
