Berlin Refugee Youths for Al Jazeera

So very happy to see the story on young refugees I photographed and interviewed in Berlin this fall published. The full piece can be seen and read over at Al Jazeera America. A huge thank you to Mark Rykoff for letting me produce this reportage, and for the great layout! With Andrew Curry (text) and Caroline Preston (editing.)

On Borrowed Time – revisited

In honor of this year’s World AIDS Day, I decided to reach out to some of the former Camp Heartland kids who were featured in the OSF Moving Walls 11 exhibition, or had been profiled in the book that I co-produced for the HIV/AIDS NGO‘s peer prevention outreach. It has been 15 years since I first began photographing and interviewing teens who were facing the continuing stigma surrounding HIV, and all these years later, given our new sharing culture and social media connectivity, it seemed time to follow up.

The series ran over at the Open Society Foundation’s Instagram feed this week, presenting updates on the young people’s lives, as well as their thoughts on growing up, secrecy and disclosure, friendship and loss, and surviving against the odds. To be continued.

Brigitte Magazine – dis/approving Flibanserin

For German women’s magazine Brigitte, I traveled with correspondent Annett Heide to capture the mood of what seemed to be a final stand of America’s 1970s generation of feminist fighters: for female libido – against the medicalization of lust – against condescending double standards at the FDA – anti any normative ideas of female desire. Whiplash inducing… As fun as a portrait series of talking heads experts can be to shoot, because, just super interesting. Some assignments are for the pictures, and others for listening and thinking.
