I am a photojournalist that makes pictures as a way for me to respond to the world around me. I am interested in telling the stories of communities whose voices would otherwise be unheard. My recent work involved a six month trip to Israel where I engaged with the narrative of the West Bank. After documenting refugee camps, the way I approach photography has drastically developed. My photographs express more than just aesthetics. They evoke emotion through the power of human experience. My goal is to continue sharing the stories of people I make connections with for everybody to see throughout the entire world.
