I make a conscious effort to place the emphasis on the relief of the face and the strength of the photograph lays in the emotional connection to the subject. I try to magnify the character… tell their story so that it is no longer possible for the viewer to remain indifferent. … I’ve been with people at the very bottom, outcasts of society, yet, still, they believe God will save them. Perplexing yet inspiring at the same time.
