Contemporary documentary photographer. 
  
Artist statement: 
  
I photograph because I have to. It is the way I react to the world around me. Photography is the method I use to make sense of things. Often my subjects are populations in transition and cultures at risk. As a documentary photographer I have worked with refugees, immigrants, nomads, pilgrims, and exiles. I prefer to avoid war and other disasters, but I make an effort to face trouble’s aftermath and look for visual notations of social well-being or distress. I search for the beauty of individuals within the uncertainty of circumstances. I look for the possibility of transcendence in spite of political or social opposition.
 
The camera is my tool for responding personally to the world. I use all formats, both digital and film, large and small. I have been known to travel with an 8X10 inch view camera hoisted on my shoulder, a 35mm camera around my neck and a panorama camera in my shoulder bag. I have used the smaller cameras for note taking, to observe some of the kinetic energy around me while I work with the more static view camera. (April 23, 2007)
