Through portraiture and landscape photography, I have investigated discriminatory labor practices, human rights abuses, and their influence on people. My interests are rooted in exposing, through long term projects, large structural systems of power and oppression. The ability to humanize these concepts through photographic reportage allows the stories to be understood by a larger audience. My most recent projects, respectively, focused on: migrants in Paris, the labor camps of the GCC and their impact on communities in India, and creating a new vernacular, through portraits, of how victims of war, in this case Iraqis, are portrayed. My newest project has shifted my focus to the environment and how to humanize climate change.
