I started photographing fifty years ago and it has continued to inform and enrich my life in ways I never could have imagined. Being able to interact with the international community of photographers, that is LensCulture, has been a wonderful honor and opportunity. I am inspired daily and motivated to push myself further because of it. My last two projects: Stonewalled in Jerusalem and American Women: Birds of im/Migration were made much more accessible because of LensCulture. I am most grateful.
