About Me


I'm an award-winning documentary photographer and filmmaker, and journalist, and a member of VII photo agency. I'm also a Guggenheim Fellow in Photography -- and a member of IATSE Local 600. I'm also the founder and artistic director of The Aftermath Project, a grant-making, educational non-profit founded on the premise that “War is Only Half the Story.”  

When I'm not shooting, I teach and talk a lot about aftermath and visual literacy issues; go to VII's website to see classes I'll be teaching this year, or find me at the Los Angeles Center for Photography. As a speaker, I've particularly enjoyed the lectures I've done at The Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles, and a TedX talk I gave in Nashville, "Storytelling in a Post-Journalism World."  

Most of all, though, I love making photos.
