Photo -Narratives

In my photography, I try to document the connection between people and ecosystems on disputed landscapes around the globe. They are an extension of my pursuit to understand how I can visually dissolve the geo-political binary to appreciate and support the knowledge held by those who understand what it means to adapt. My time in contested spaces is spent being with and learning from the people who understand what it means to live harmoniously with landscape despite geo-political unrest. I am hopeful that these images help guide me to becoming a better caretaker and steward for this earth.
