I like to document the expression of life, whatever moves me to pick up my camera and capture the moment: the interaction of light and nature, the crystallization of water into ice, birds in flight, the living beings that cross my path, a person's expression, the injustices in life.
As a freelance photojournalist some of my work highlights injustice and exploitation. After the events of 9.11, I spent a year documenting anti-war protests in Oregon.
I have traveled extensively throughout India, living in various regions. My photos of India span a period of two years and six visits. I have spent several years working on a book on the subject of female genocide, which is at present sitting on a shelf; a work in progress...
For the time being I am working on something lighter, elevating - observing and photographing birds at Delta Ponds. I've spent countless days and hours over the last several months watching and tracking mostly great blue herons, excited and honored to be a witness to their habits, rituals and relationships.
