The spirituality in MFF’s photographs transcends his personalized Fuji equipment and its ability to capture natural light and what it can reveal. There is an ineffable element in MFF’s artwork, a quality of secrecy and mystery which can also be revealed in one's heart, so that, when viewing his creative canvases, we can find the spiritual in ourselves as well.
