Why I Photograph –
To take pictures of the commonality of human experience by finding startling and impossible beauty in poor, little known places of destitution and desolation,
To go deeper into the meaning of the human and environmental condition,
To bring marginalized people, cultures and places to people’s consciousness in a way that expresses a part of the narrative of their lives,
To be a witness to their condition and to acknowledge them as valuable,
To invite the viewer to participate in the witnessing by viewing the picture.
