|About the Artist:
I am a documentary photographer and photography teacher. I grew up in a number of places including Los Angeles, New York and Sweden before settling in Venice Beach, CA. While attending the University of California Santa Barbara, I worked as a photo editor for my school paper and traveled throughout Southeast Asia, the Middle East and the Caribbean. In 2003 I studied at the University of Costa Rica where I collaborated with UN Consultant, Warren Crowther, to document several informative workshops held in low-income areas for UNICEF catalogues. Since then I have spent a total of two years globetrotting and freelancing for several newspapers. I have traveled to nearly 50 countries that range from Syria, Ghana, India and Cuba. I have an extreme interest in capturing humanity without commercializing my subjects. My photographs depict a variety of people with different cultures, customs and backgrounds across the globe combined with intense colors and fine art editing.
