I don't pretend that I'm giving voice to anyone; they come with their own. I'm moving intentionally to uplift everyday stories. Through photographing both the ceremonial and the mundane with equal care, my work explores social issues and questions about identity. It feels important to practice offering space while checking the influence of my own gaze while telling stories that exist free of a positive/negative binary.
Changes in the way the work and resources are redistributed to be more inclusive, valuing folks’ identities — it benefits all of us. Not only would this create more equity across the industry but the quality of storytelling becomes richer.
