is creating Citizen Photojournalism

Welcome

Hello... I am a citizen photojournalist based in Northampton, MA.

The Beat

I cover issues centering around political street violence and the rise of far right ideologies in the US. My goal is to expose and describe the hypocrisy of ideologies that manifest in violence in the everyday lives of people living in the United States.

Media Critical Journalism

I do not hide that my politics are Left. The notion of the independent, unbiased, impartial journalist is a myth. How we construct a photograph, where we point our camera, whether the framing is tight or wide, choice of background, amount of bokeh, etc; what topics we choose to cover and what voice we use to report on them; and  "both sides" journalism are just a few examples of how journalists betray their personal beliefs and biases and present an affected story or unwittingly become an instrument of exploitation.

I believe the only solution is to be transparent about where you stand, and use basic journalistic ethical standards and practices.

Support Citizen Journalism

If you appreciate my transparency, my voice, and share my goal of working toward a society that allows for all to live with dignity I encourage you to support me in any variety of ways.
