Over the years since moving to Thailand in 1990 I have worked on personal projects and on assignment for numerous organizations where I photographed adults and children in various conditions;  from poverty to community development,  disaster response situations and children who survive on the streets.

Some of the children in these photos lived through traumatic experiences .... war, natural disasters, extreme poverty and exploitation.

These photographs  are from over 30 years of time from Cambodia, Vietnam, Bangladesh, China, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Africa, Nepal, and the USA.


They depict joy, hardships, change, development and hope. There is a saying that holds true I heard many years ago….”You can always find a little happiness, even in the most dire conditions, through the eyes of a child.”
