I have interviewed and photographed over two hundred people on a range of personal and meaningful topics, from identity and self-construction to dreaming and dying. I find that a generosity of spirit and a quiet gentleness encourages interviewees to engage openly with the camera, and to reveal their wisdom. Acknowledging that both interviewing and photography are a communication between two people enables me to elicit genuine and insightful stories about people and their lives. I work with photography, text, audio and video.
