Welcome to my blog

Welcome to my blog

I am a humanitarian photographer whose photographs address important social welfare concerns worldwide. I believe the visual image is a powerful tool that creates a lasting impression of emotion, curiosity, caring and hope of mankind.

I travel the world photographing divergent people and cultures resulting in images that express the dignity of our universal connection. The soulful intimacy of my photos comes from spending time in my subjects world and capturing their essence.

The permission they grant me, the openness they offer me by inviting me into their world, never ceases to inspire me.
