On my summer road trip to the SW USA, last summer, I was lucky to have an assignment to work on a project for The Shriver Report. Great friend Barbara Kinney assembled a phenom group of women to do documentary stories about women living on the edge. Of course, with my love of the Navajo people, I recommended we do my shoot there.
Cut to this week as Maria Shriver unveils this years' Shriver Report. It was launched with a high-powered Washington DC photo exhibit of our work, TV specials and Maria herself dropping the report off to President Obama.
A few of my images here from the shoot of Jeannie James of Winslow, AZ who is raising her 3 grand-daughters while making a drive of 2 hours each way to work for the Navajo Nation social services. I loved spending time with them and hope to visit them this spring and bring a few prints. The strength of these women seen in the report is inspirational. It was nice to see the support of The Shriver team for documentary, meaningful photography.
