2012 SECOND PRIZE WINNER
Multimedia and text by
As a photojournalist who travels extensively around the world, home for me has always been a shifting term, with shifting people and shifting objects vying for my attention.
Upon meeting Julie Winokur in 1992, that dynamic was forever altered. When we married in 1994, a pattern of recording journals addressed to Julie was already firmly established. In keeping with the changing times, what began as paper journals was replaced with daily emails by 2000.
Encompassing nearly 20 years, this film is a selection of those journal entries from various locations around the world written for my wife.
The very act of creating this film touches upon my desire to reach out to others and to report on issues throughout the world. I am constantly looking for ways to expand the conversation of my work and the medium of photojournalism; to ultimately broaden the ways in which we tell stories and share our personal feelings.
In a sense,'Photojournalisms' (a supplement to my recent book by the same title) is a different way to look at the world using both internal and external impressions, words and images — the depth of my feelings, touched so deeply and so often by the realities I witness.
