Children of Indigenous Nations

Before I had kids I was able to travel more freely and do documentary work.  Now that my children are old enough to go all over I’m itching to go back to that style of photography.  When I did documentary stuff between 2000-2007, it was the years of film, strong-arm conservatism and endless war, immigration protests, etc.  I was quite wet behind the ears and naive and didn’t have kids yet.  When I look through the work I did in the past, I find myself looking for narratives- some kind of storyline beyond “I was here at this time and took these photos.”  Today, what I really respond most to is the kids.

Kids are expressive, great models, and have the uniqueness of being billboards for modern international culture.  They blend the old and new and always have style.
