Stopped into my friend’s coffee shop for a quick shoot—and it turned into a whole website. You can do a lot with just a few nice photos.
Members of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and allies from around the country converged in New York City from March 11-15, 2018, for a 5-day Freedom Fast. The major grassroots action was part of the national boycott against Wendy’s fast-food company, who refuses to join its industry leaders and competitors by participating in the Fair Food Program, a worker-led accountability system that has improved wages and job conditions for thousands of farmworkers.

It doesn’t exist anymore, but ROOT was once the hippest, most retro-chic bar in Fishtown. Dynamic patterns and buttery textures at every glance.
Sometimes you just want to get married and you want it documented and you don’t need a multimedia production about it. I’m an affordable, unobtrusive option for intimate ceremonies, elopements, City Hall things, and regular old cute couple photos.
These photos were commissioned by Keffa Coffee Importers, based in Baltimore. Keffa's strong relationships to exporters and farmers in various coffee-growing regions of Ethiopia provided access to some of the most beautiful mills and farms in Yirgacheffe, Sidamo, and Harrar. With their trademarked specialty coffees Ardi and YirgZ, Keffa is one of the most consistent and reliable sources of quality Ethiopian beans in the U.S.
In addition to these photos, Keffa commissioned reports on each farm and mill visited. I worked with translators to interview two mill employees for each visit (8 mills in total). For more info about my approach to documentary photography and writing, please send me an email.
