Compassion and Culture
Connecting through People

Photographing people keeps you connected with humanity, across cultures. Like a snake shedding its skin, you enter a new world each time you photograph someone, especially when you are out of your element. In a new society, you are looking for new perspectives, ways to connect and empathize. The transformative powers of human interaction reward us with new friendship, and/or remind us of our fears and ignorance. Either way, we get a bit closer to resolving our own limits between compassion, culture and conflict.
