I HAVE BEEN ON THE TRAIL FOR ALMOST TWO DECADES DOCUMENTING THE MOOD IN THE U.S. AT THE DAWN OF THE 21 ST CENTURY
I give voice to those whose stories provide us creative inspiration to rethink how to stay engaged. Activism incites change, and I have made a career out of identifying the story we have not heard. As a photojournalist my focus has been to take photographs that create awareness to celebrate the human spirit. When I began my photographic project , I Protest, I was in search of a visual template that could help me relate the successful marches of my generation, in the seventies, to today's protests. I never seem to tire of documenting what compels people to rise up. Maybe that's because I still believe a single photo has the power to affect our over stimulated culture. The challenge is to present the image that would have never have been seen. After eighteen years on the trail there is no shortage of drama and chaos. Today the frenzy is at a fever pitch. I have witnessed the growing establishment of two distinct Americas, as the divide in the U.S. today has challenged the stability of our democracy.
I felt i needed to hear from those I had covered on the trail and decided to create America Speaks Podcast; a groundbreaking weekly show that challenges us to go beyond the political malaise and find inspiration from everyday heroes who are dedicating their lives to alternative ideas and actions.
