POYi Multimedia Photographer of the Year

Photo©Ed Kashi/VII When I began my life in photojournalism, I never would have predicted the direction the field would take. As this craft continues to evolve at a breakneck pace, it opens up new ways to engage with your audience and offers new tools and methods for dynamic storytelling – like motion and sound. This new way of telling stories is sometimes called multimedia, but in reality is short form documentary filmmaking.  Exploring these new avenues, I have come to cherish the importance of bringing a voice to my subjects and the greater responsibility this medium beckons upon my practice…

Rio is Over

Rio de Janeiro. It’s over. Done. I still have a day or so to be here to finish my BeachGames zine, yet I know I’m done. It’s a let down to come out of the zone. Drug addict. So I will need another fix as soon as I can. Yet now I must flip. Go from pure passion to pure production and get things moving with layout and printing. I must go from dreamer to decider. Both work for me. Still mostly I will be searching for my next dream. ‪#‎beachgames‬ ‪#‎rio‬‪#‎leica‬ ‪#‎monochrom‬ ‪#‎burnmagazine‬

My garage is filled with things I had to have, things that would make my life easier, things that were just bound to work so much better and on such…
