I travel alone challenging notions of fear, equality, and advocate for religious freedom in this divisive global climate. My photography and documentary films seek to promote cultural inclusion by searching for commonalities between different cultures. I founded The Peace Caravan Project to bear witness to the disappearing cultures from Jerusalem, Israel to Xi’an, China. I travel solo by car, foot, horse, and camel in my quest to explore my connection to the worlds major religions.
Since 1996, I have photographed in the mosques, temples and churches in China, India, Turkey, Afghanistan, Syria, Jordan, Israel, Egypt and Uganda. In my photos I strive to create Empathy, create change in others’ lives through information and inspiration. To provide opportunities to “see ourselves in the other".
My cameras point to the unvarnished truths, to depict honestly, the people who live out of the mainstream of history.
