As we discussed the project, I suggested a series of street engagement shots, one every month. The idea was to […]

Havana was a visual paradise as my early photos for Cuba: Seven in 10 show!

I’m thrilled to announce my next book, where I will be one of seven contributors. The book will be called Cuba: Seven in 10. Seven Washington, DC photographers journey together to Cuba and capture their perspective on the Caribbean island in 10 photos each.
