Human Connection: The Tapestry of Life

Families of the World is a photographic series that
seeks to capture our sense of place and belonging across the

While shooting, I found how different cultures enact rituals and
traditions that not only shape their values as human beings, but
provide strength and empowerment to their identities.

On a larger scale, my series transitions through cityscapes,
refugee camps and mountainside scenes, weaving a tapestry that
pivots from the sacred to the profane, unfolding on a larger scale,
the full spectrum of the human experience.

From the small intimate details of our everyday interactions
with our environment to the grace that is expressed through our
movements and traditions, I find that our dignity is constantly
being challenged, fought for and expressed uniting us and
disconnecting us all within the same moment.

dance that encapsulates the everyday affairs of how we relate as a
family, community and the collective.
