I'm a New York based documentary photographer who is interested in documenting the plight of refugees and internally displaced people in developing countries.
As a photographer, I try to find beauty in situations that may be on many levels stark and desperate. I hope that looking at my photographs provoke an interest to know more about the place and people that I am photographing. I believe that there is a thread that binds all humanity and in my photography, I try to honor that by creating a relationship with the people I photograph. I often spend hours with someone before I pick up my camera. This allows me to capture a certain truth about their lives, that I might have otherwise missed.
