These photographs are in response to marginalization and gentrification in the landscape around me. The people in my photographs endure these social changes while remaining authentic and true to themselves. Every person is beautiful and deserves to be acknowledged. That just because life may have hurt you in some way doesn’t mean you are without dignity. I am forever grateful to the people who allow me a glimpse into their lives. They have enriched my life far beyond anything I’ve ever experienced.
