My passion as a documentary photojournalist stems from the thrill of capturing an unexpected moment on film. Whether traveling to Cairo for an in-flight magazine, traversing rural India for Plan International’s health programs or seeking out Jewish communities in Morocco, Cuba, Ireland, Poland and more, I cherish the moments not predicted on my itinerary.
In these faraway places, unlike most major cities in the United States, I feel safe and comfortable walking around at all hours of day and night. In Cairo I can easily spend hours frequenting the coffee shops of the old city; in Morocco the myriad of shops enveloping the ancient medinas offer delight for all the senses; in Sefat young Ethiopian immigrants invite me along as they meander for hours through centuries-old biblical streets.
The images in this series are a glimpse of the beauty I have discovered on my sojourns.
