Advice for the younglings out there looking through their first viewfinder?
Learn why film works - take a class developing your own prints. The whole structure of digital photography is built off of this stuff. Maybe im just being old and croggey but a lot can be learned from the old develop-fix- and wash if you know what I'm sayin! Shoot often, and get the chance to critique and show your work whenever you can.
What’s the story behind the photo below?
I shot that photo this year is juarez, Mexico while documenting the femicide epidemic.
Any future projects or travels?
I've been working on this project documenting the Lakotah people of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. More trips to the midwest to come.

In 1 word, last thing you’d say if time stopped right NOW?
