South Africa — J-Term 2017
"A street mural in Capetown, South Africa. 'All shall be equal before the law' is a commendable saying, but chain link fences and barbed wire still separate many."
Iringa, Tanzania – Fall 2016
"'Puto' is the Swahili word for balloon. The day I took this picture, we were holding an event for World AIDS Day. There was a huge soccer game occurring, and everybody was watching but these kids. I found them blowing up the balloons we passed out over by the road of eucalyptus trees. They saw I was taking pictures of the tree giants planted by missionaries in the 60s, and curiously asked if I would take a picture of them. I gladly snapped away, and then handed them more balloons."
