Awareness of our common humanity, the fragility of cultures, and the vulnerability of those living the barest existence inspire the foundation of my work. As I depict my subjects, they are captured in a moment of time, revealing their inner grace and the beauty found in the infinite details of their environment: the sun-cracked earth, the drape of tired fabric, and the detritus of struggle.
