For 30 years, my camera has been my passport to the world. Through countless assignments, humanity has pranced, screamed, reveled and wept before my lens, unveiling the secrets of the human heart, the sorrows and struggles of the powerful and the weak.
Two men live inside me. One craves a quiet, peaceful life with my family and among the wonders of nature. The other man wrestles with the blessings and curses of being an artist. This man believes the world deserves his full attention and care. My talent is artistic composition and a clear eye. I’ve always believed that endowed talent comes bundled with responsibility, which, in my case is to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.
These images bear witness to courage, honor, tragedy, ignorance, racism, foolishness, gentleness, exhaustion, joy, enlightenment, hate, fear, abandonment and heroism.
I strive to understand how people live and think. My passion is telling their stories.
