In San Francisco an organization called SLUG, the San Francisco League of Urban Gardeners, find vacant lots in the midst of the city and plant gardens filled with flowers and vegetables. The book shows how the children with the guidance of their elders, plant, weed, harvest and eat, the fruits of their labor.
Basically I’m a people photographer. I like people and especially kids. When I find a subject I’m curious about I look for someone who can teach me about it. The stories develop from what they tell me. By taking the time to get to know people they can share their thoughts and we become friends. I cherish these friendships. To create a book I travel and meet people who open their lives to me. I photograph, listen, and sometimes live with them. Then I return to my studio where I put together the words, pictures, and design the book.close
