Bio

Photo-for-website-

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by stories. Throughout much of my life, I satisfied this interest with the study of history. The topics of war, uprising, social movements and sexuality defined my course of historical study and generated a deep curiosity in the modern aspects of these issues. While the past enthralls me, my interest in creating modern primary documents ultimately won out.  

Since 2005, I have worked to document the individual consequences of war, poverty and social unrest. Through a combination of photography, text, audio and video recordings, I aim to illustrate broader issues through individual stories. I strive to create images and material that demand consideration for the lives of those depicted. I believe that intimate, sensitive photographs leave indelible marks on the conscience and actively oppose the sterilization of human suffering.
