Just outside of Boston, I photographed the last stands of old-growth forest in New England, home to many of the tallest trees in the North East. Published in Smithsonian Magazine.
Infrared was originally developed to reveal the presence of military positions in conflict zones. In this ongoing series, I use infrared film to highlight the growing militarization of American civic life.
In American cities, pigeons are rats with wings. In Cairo, they are an art form.
In recent years, the world learned of China’s vast system of Uighur control and detention in Xinjiang. In 2008, I spent a year documenting life in Xinjiang as these policies were only in their infancy.
Over the course of five years, I set out to photograph the spaces where the spiritual meets the tactile world. Published by National Geographic and the subject of two solo exhibitions.
During the Syrian revolution, only a handful of photojournalists received visas to report from the government-held territory. On several trips, I photographed the front lines of both the government and rebel sides.
As a photographer,
I tell people’s stories truthfully, with curiosity and respect. I lived in North Africa and the Middle East for almost ten years, photographing culture, politics, and war for global magazines and newspapers. In 2020, I moved to Boston to document this dynamic moment in the US.
I also enjoy photographing for publications, companies, and other institutions to tell their stories. Most of my commercial photography is around New England, but I have been commissioned for projects worldwide.
I use a broad set of skills in my photography, including drone photography, video production, portraiture, and infrared photography. However, the most critical skills are still the journalistic basics of getting closer, listening carefully, and witnessing.
In Progress: A birds-eye view
This project is in its infancy, and I don’t know where it will go, but I’m having a lot of fun.
Outside my Camera Bag
Inspired by Amanda Mustard’s list of helpful tools, I compiled my list of things that make my life easier as a freelance photojournalist.
What to wear for a portrait?
Wear clothes that make you comfortable. Wear clothes that help you feel confident walking into a room of strangers or highlighting a part of your personality.
