I like to tell stories about persons and their communities in places around the world through images.
In 2006 I was awarded a scholarship to FABRICA, where I worked in its photography department for a year. During this period I created a body of work on the lives of fishermen in Japan, Alaska, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, which was exhibited at several venues internationally including Centre Georges Pompidou, La Triennale di Milano, and the Shanghai Art Museum.
During my residency I also traveled to the Amazon rainforest in Brazil as a photographer for issue 68 of COLORS magazine themed on the Amazon, and I contributed photography to several of the magazine’s subsequent issues.
At the end of my residency at FABRICA, I began working with the South Asia bureau of The New York Times and was awarded a Human Rights Press Award in 2008 for my work on the men in India who make sewer manhole covers for the streets of New York City and other cities of the developed world.
My work eventually earned me recognition with the TED Conferences and I became a TED Fellow in 2009.
From 2010 up to the present, I have focused my storytelling efforts in the media of cinema and graphic novel literature.
