I am a passionate traveler and a curious soul that uses photography as a vehicle to immerse myself into the rhythms of daily life around me. I travel the world in search of it's people, their unique cultural traditions, and the landscapes that inspire them. My documentary projects focus on people who still maintain a spiritual dialogue with the natural world emphasizing the common threads of humanity that bind us together.

Tawantinsuyu

In Quechua the term Tawantin is a group of four things. Suyu means region or province. The empire was divided into four suyus, whose corners met at the capital, Cusco (Qosqo).

Moving water, as in a river, is considered purifying in Hindu culture because it is thought to both absorb impurities and take them away.

This project explores the Indian people's complex relationship with the sacred rivers of north India.
