A few kind words from the people I've gifted my images to as a thank you for their support when I launched my mission more than a decade ago: 

"The photo print you gifted me is very special to me. I look at it often. I've hung it in my main living area and get many questions about it." - Amanda MF (Canada)

"The images are hanging in my living room. I love having them here in my new home, I look at them ever day." - CBC Newsroom colleague (Canada)

UNITING OUR GLOBAL COMMUNITY

FOR THE LOVE OF GLOBAL CULTURES & SURVIVAL

When I met with members of the San community in Namibia in  2015, they spoke to me about their concerns and fear for their cultural survival. Evicted from their traditional lands, forbidden from practicing their sustainable hunting practices and being forced to "modernize," to adapt to the ways of the urban and present-day society meant that their Indigenous culture was very likely to be on the brink of extinction. "20 years" said Junta, one of the San Tribesman I spoke with. 
I documented a snippet of their story, and it's a reality, awareness and conversation that needs to keep going. I honour my brief time spent with you...may your voices resonate,  inform and inspire many generations to come.
