The longer I spend photographing any particular topic, the deeper the photographs. Each image begins with asking a question, and through the photographic process I try to find an answer. Some of my favorite projects include traveling internationally to document humanitarian efforts in Central America and East Africa, and documenting Ben & Jerry on the campaign trail of Bernie Sanders. My work has been published in National Geographic, The Wall Street Journal, and The Chicago Tribune among others.
Food 4 Farmers is a non profit that works with coffee farmers in Latin America to address the problem of “los meses flacos,” or “the thin months.” Every year, coffee farmers and their families experience 1-4 months of starvation, when there is nothing left to harvest or sell, and therefore no income to provide for their family. Food 4 Farmers addresses this complex issue by teaching farmers a new trade that will enable them to have an alternative source of income throughout the year.
