Supporting women and families!


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.
