pictures means holding your breath with all your
faculties concentrated on capturing a fleeting reality.” Henri
These images document many of the people I have
been privileged to know and photograph for more than
two decades working as a photojournalist. Whether
they are famous adults or children playing dress
up, my goal has always been to “seize the moment
of truth” as Bresson has said, and with compassion
and patience allow for the humanity of my subjects
to reveal, in perhaps unguarded moments, what is
both unique and universal in their portraits.
