My approach to my work comes from my dual role as photographer and activist. I am a participant rather than an impartial observer of events. I tend to work candidly and I work to develop relationships of trust that are reflected in my photographs.
I have been a peace and community activist for 35 years. My photographic work is rooted in this experience. I currently work with the US Peace Movement and make many trips to New Orleans to document the rebuilding of the city.
