I first picked up a camera when I was eight years old, and never put it down. While working as a civil rights attorney, I began photographing cultural events for the Middlesex County Cultural and Heritage Commission and political events for the Guardian, a progressive weekly newspaper in New York City, until it ceased publishing in the early nineties. I have documented the way of life and environments of the indigenous peoples in Guatemala, Costa Rica, Mexico and Ecuador. I am most interested in documenting the work of humanitarian organizations and NGOs that work for social and political change. Currently my client list includes the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey (ACLU-NJ) the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC); Amnesty International USA (AIUSA); the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS-Ecuador) and the Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding.
