I use photography to tell stories. Not to reflect what one may expect from a place or event, but to challenge the way the viewer perceives the world. Not to comfort and affirm assumptions, but to provoke and complicate places and issues. My work aims to bring to light the complexities of the world around me.
As we read stories and played outside the library where I worked these kids were anxious to be the first to answer a question the librarian had posed. In their eyes you can see the enthusiasm to learn.
As I was taking pictures of Harriet for an identification card she broke into this smile, one I saw often in the village.
The look of confusion and shock in the eyes of the soldier was the feeling in the room.
As this young student of the elementary school connected to the organization danced by I watched as one of our teachers led her.
