I am an artist and documentary photographer for social justice. In my childhood I was always attracted to the underdog - the invisible: ones - perhaps, because of my own overwhelming feeling of not belonging.
After years of working in Hollywood and feeling spiritually unfulfilled, I walked out of the casting studio and picked up a still camera. It was time to tell the stories of people who don’t have a voice, rather than advertising for consumer products that nobody needs.
Being behind the camera's eye allows me to get close to people. I can bear witness to their stories and help educate and enlighten others.
You can tell a person’s story just by capturing the look in their eyes or the sway of their body. Eyes are, indeed, the window to the soul and the body the transmitter of an international language of humanity.
