A Moment of Being

In a still moment, I use my intuition to see the woman in front of me. I ask her if she will allow me to photograph her. In this way I am asking her to acknowledge and affirm her strength and beauty. This body of work grows more powerful as the women become more and more visible. For the subject, this manifests as a documented pause in the day for her to reflect on herself. The viewer and I are honored with the opportunity to share in these moments with the women.

This collection began in 2007 and includes women in many walks of life from all over the world. This is a work in progress.
