As a mature photographer...I believe I'll hide behind my images for a short while until I can get a sense of what's valuable enough to share in print - what it is you'd like to know and what I'd like to give...to you. That this image maker would have anything worthy to say that others would want to read about is interesting in itself - especially when so many words...at times...can mean so little
We've just returned from East Africa, producing portraits of people in a hot zone for malnutrition located along the edges of The Chalbi Desert in Northern Kenya - with many people suffering under a multi year drought that has exacted a heavy price on the youngest of children with their mothers having few resources to ease their hunger...like the young child in the image above, it's a hard life with few choices available
Part of my ongoing work around the globe is to help raise awareness to serious issues that have to do with the human condition and its from these journeys that I'll share with you, what I believe is the best that I have to offer - my journeys to the field which are blanketed with memories of the sweetest children's smiles to the deepest of human sorrows that anyone could ever imagine...this photographer has experienced so much and for those interested in such topics - i'll do my best to give you a taste of development work - having spent so many miles and so many years away from home to play my part for good...
I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you may have or give you information on how to get involved and how to find an organization that's a good fit for your interest and ability.
