Kenyan Crisis Video

2008, Nairobi Kenya. Following a contentious election, ethnic violence explodes in East Africa’s most stable and burgeoning democracy. The political crisis plunged the country into chaos, exposing large cracks in the system – deep wounds historic inequalities have left untreated. Some called it political genocide, others said it teetered on ethnic cleansing. Either way, it’s a raw look at the face of street justice and the brutalities that accompany it in a society that largely lacks juridical recourse.

Crisis on the Border Video

2008, Eastern Chad. A quarter million Darfur refugees have fled conflict in their native Sudan,. Camped along they border, they depend on international aid agencies for survival. European troops have just arrived under UN mandate to mount a peace-keeping mission to protect aid workers, locals and refugees from bandits and violence spilling over the border from Sudan. Darfuris fled a conflict over basic resources 6 years prior, to a country already struggling with its own limitations, ushering Eastern Chad into perpetual conflict. 

Color Me Night Video

2012. My good friend and colleague Armando Ribeiro proposed a collaboration with Portuguese musician Pedro Gomes Marques for a group show in Portugal. I sent 100 photographs and some sampled sounds to Pedro, who used them as inspiration to compose a soundtrack. The resulting soundscape created a loose narrative, a structure upon which I built the video. The body of work represents about 6 years of travel – sometimes on assignment, other times not – photographing my immediate surroundings, always and only at night.
