Based between New York and Berlin, I've worked in dozens of countries across six continents. My photographic reporting has been published in National Geographic, Smithsonian, GEO, The New Yorker, Time, The New York Times Magazine, The Guardian, Stern Magazine, and Terra Mater. Attending the Eddie Adams Workshop in 1998 marked the start of my career, and the following year I was nominated for the World Press Photo / Joop Swart Masterclass. Since then, professional organizations have recognized my work with awards, such as Pictures of the Year (POYi), National Press Photographers Association (NPPA), Communication Arts, American Photography, Px3, among others. Along the way, I've also served on the juries of the Nikon photo contest, the Andrei Stenin Photo Competition, the Harry Chapin Media Awards and worked as an adjunct professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and at the International Center of Photography.
