He states, “My photographic journey is rooted in my ability to capture the essence and reality of humanity at its finest and at its worst.

I am where I am. … Everything in my life is falling apart right now.”
She continued, “My (husband) is retired from the military. I’m the primary breadwinner in my family. I don’t have the option of failure. … It’s a scary time for me.”
