I am a documentary and fine arts photographer.
My work explores individuals in the context of human community and the natural world. We often see others through the lens of our own expectations, fears and hopes, rather than as individuals. I strive to move myself, as photographer, and my audience beyond expectation, creating a sense of curiosity and openness.
My images document and explore individual lives, the history of human and natural communities, and our possible futures. I am drawn to stories of hope, vitality, and creativity; to individuals and communities who are marginalized yet working to have a voice; and, to themes of love, democracy, social justice, and ecology.
