The Camera is an excuse to be somewhere you otherwise don't belong. It gives you both a point of connection, and a point of separation.

I am a social documentary photographer, shooting images of remarkable organizations addressing some of the most critical social issues of our time. Often in the course of that work "my camera takes me places I don't otherwise belong", allowing me to explore the use of photography as a tool for activism, and to understand what we see, and feel, as we are exposed to the stories of others. 

I’m following the line of my own story by studying the intersection points with the stories of others. My tools are photography and curiosity. Rebecca Solnit writes that “empathy is first of all an act of the imagination”, allowing you to leave your own narrative and step into the story of another.  

We now live with an extraordinary amount of imagery at our fingertips; are we seeing more, or less?
