Entry Description

I traveled to Dakar, Senegal for 10 days to document the challenges and resilience of children in this city of two million. It is estimated that 50,000 children, ages 5-15, every day are forced to take to the streets and beg. Many must children work instead of attend school, or work as well as attend school.

About Photographer

I shoot stills inside of travel, a culture, an adventure, or for the ideal of conservation... As a dynamic shooter I live for the unfolding of moments as elements come together that make for a powerful image and love the element of surprise that comes from found images.
