Book Cover

This is not the cover of my forthcoming book, Finding Trust, I want to keep that a secret until the Kehrer Spring catalogue comes out, but this is one of the options that I did not choose, still a beautiful layout, thank you to Marijske and Katharina in Frankfurt, Germany.

Best Interview about me ever on Paw Nation today

So far i’ve had my fair share of interviews and writings about my work with the animals at Sarvey. The work has transformed my life in so many ways and i’ve had to deal with some pretty crazy things along the way so there is a lot to say about it and too many ways to make me out to be something I am not. But Kelli Bender at Paw Nation took my words and was able to translate them into a beautiful story, I think the most true one to date. So thank you Kelli from the depths of my heart!!!
xoxo

My Pictures from Syria

Click Here for My Syria

In 2003 a friend of mine asked if Josh and I wanted to go to Syria with his writers group. I was like, “hells Yes”! but then one minute later I said “Oh Hells no”! I’m not really that crazy………
But alas I did go, with my husband Josh and a group of other really great people. I remember that while we were there, the hangings of American Military happened in Falluja and they declared that all Americans in the middle east should leave or be killed. I was really scared and wanted to leave, I am as far away as you can get from a war photographer and I didn’t want to be in the middle of any conflict, but i’m glad we stayed. The people I met there, in Homs, Allepo, Damascus and many other cities where now there is only desolation, were very kind and so family oriented. Picnics happened all the time and all over the place, along the highway and in every green spot of grass they could find. It was utterly beautiful to see people living like this, so warm and inviting to us. And now, to see the images from those lands I visited makes my heart ache to think of all the beautiful children and families who are suffering. I remember distinctly one day in Allepo, the oldest city in Syria, I was photographing and realized I was being followed by about 15 children, they were laughing and giggling and I think to them I might have been one of the first white people they had seen, which for me wouldn’t be the first time I was in that situation, I remember loving those kids and wishing I could speak with them and laugh too. I remember a beautiful place that was Syria.

Beautiful Quote from a new friend

recently received this quote from a new friend and backer of my Kickstarter project, it completely embodies my aim with these Finding Trust pictures, from Henry Beston, enjoy………..

“We need another and a wise and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature, and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.” Henry Beston
